Issa, Congratulations to you and the Universal Print team!   The team has done exceedingly well developing new cloud-based printing technologies and building a strong and inclusive ecosystem amongst all the print solution vendors.   Again, kudos to you and the team!

Is this available for GCC? If not, is there an ETA? Thanks!

Occasional Contributor

I was following the development of this and was using the beta for a bit, so I was excited to see this launch. Unfortunately I think you've killed it with that licensing model. The idea that I'm supposed to spend time deploying a new print solution that requires me to keep an eye on usage to ensure I add extra packs of 500 jobs to that pool in plenty of time to prevent a complete shutdown in printing across the company is clownshoes thinking, and that 5 jobs per user starter limit is ridiculous.

 

To present a forecast of costs to get sign off on deploying something like this, I would need to have something like PaperCut in place for a few months to gather the information on how many print jobs are submitted across the company each month, and translate that into add-on packs. By the time I've deployed that why wouldn't I just keep on using it to manage my printers?

@Garrett Brown We are working on GCC. It is important but we don't have an ETA yet.  As soon as we have one, we'll share.

So when is the Azure going to be updated?
When is the documentation going to be updated... is there anything we need to do to move from preview to GA?

Universal Print.pngAzure still showing this.  We have the correct licensing, as required per listed requirements from Microsoft, however are still unable to access this service.   

@RavenC1 Sorry to hear you're having issues accessing Universal Print. We'll need a bit more info to figure out what's going on. Can you please either open a support ticket or send me a message directly to collect the required info?

 

@nclinch and @RavenC1 The preview label will be removed from Azure Portal shortly.

Occasional Visitor

@Braeden_Petruk_MSFT we have the same issue as @RavenC1 and I opened a support ticket for it. We see the preview too.

Hello Issa, is Microsoft Universal Print available for China?

Thanks

Print job limits being imposed is a really sneaky and unfortunate move that has removed a lot of enthusiasm I had for this product. As mentioned above, 5 print jobs pooled per license is absolutely unrealistic especially if it's a smaller company, and the price for adding on 500 jobs is way too high. I really hope this is reconsidered, as it is now I can't see this being recommended to any of our clients. Why should they have to pay to print from their own printers at the end of the day?

Frequent Visitor

Completely agree with the previous criticisms of the licensing. We print a LOT and this licensing info took us straight from "we're definitely trying this" to "yeah, never happening."

Occasional Contributor

Universal printing is a great concept, been following this for a while now. 

* I understand the need for print job licensing, but 5 licenses by default? That's really what we want, manage add on print licenses... 

* I hope you guys work on the way it's deployed through Endpoint configuration manager, I was surprised on how that's configured. 


I'll definitly keep an eye on this.

My college campus was pretty excited about this product, but it is so far stillborn without native Mac support. While we don't have a requirement, over 85% of our students opt for Macs, and it seems counterintuitive to have to pay yet-another-partner to get that support.  Is native Mac support on the roadmap, and if so, when?

5 print jobs per user per month as part of a M365 E5 plan? Are you guys joking?

Senior Member

Yep, print job limitations make this a no go.  Way too small a pool of print jobs.  For our firm, we'd blow through the monthly limit in about two days in our busiest time of year.  There's just not enough here to justify the cost.  I was all on board until I read the licensing model.

Contributor

Same here, as soon we were made aware of the licensing costs and limitations, we had to stop talking about this. It is a nice product, but the licensing model is really poor. We will not use it going forward and from my networking group of IT professionals, everyone is thinking the same way. Nice idea, badly executed with this license model and no one will really use it.

Regular Visitor

The licensing model effectively kills this.  We were really keen on using this alongside uniFLOW Online so that we get follow me printing and secure scanning, but setting the maximum print jobs as low as 5 per user per month is absolutely ridiculous, especially given the money already shelled out by E3 and E5 customers.  Companies would need to have someone continuously monitoring usage to ensure sufficient add on packs were purchased in the allowance was close to being used up.

 

Another own goal by Microsoft I'm afraid.
