Solution


To create a filter:

  1. From the menu bar, select MarkVision, Filters. A Filter Creation screen appears.

  2. Click New.

  3. Give your filter a meaningful name.

  4. Under Name, select either Basic or Advanced.


    • If you select Basic, note the following in selecting the filter conditions:


      • If you select more than one condition, you can specify whether a device must meet any or all conditions in order to be included in the folder.

      • If you select All, a device must meet all conditions.

      • If you select Any, a device must meet at least one condition in order to be included in the folder.

    • If you select Advanced, you can create conditions by first selecting a parameter, then selecting a logical operation, and then selecting or entering a value.
      For example, to "filter out" all color printers, do the following:


      1. From the parameter list, select Color.

      2. From the operation list, select Equal To.

      3. From the value list, select Monochrome.

Similarly, to "filter in" all printers with job timeouts greater than or equal to 90 seconds, do the following:

  1. From the parameter list, select Job Timeout.

  2. From the operation list, select Greater Than Or Equal To.

  3. In the value box, enter 90.

Note: Some values (such as the 90 seconds in the previous example) must be entered manually.
As in the Basic filter configuration, the following selection conditions apply:


      • If you select All, a device must meet all conditions.
      • If you select Any, a device must meet at least one condition in order to be included in the folder.
      • If only one condition is specified, the Any and All options will be disabled.

For a more in-depth look at filters, see the section on  Using filters  in the User's Guide.
To apply a filter to a folder:


  1. On the menu bar, click MarkVision Folders. A Folder Configuration screen appears.

  2. Select the folder you want to configure.

  3. If you have already applied a filter to this folder, the filter settings appear.

  4. If you want to apply a previously created filter, click Load Filter..., and then choose the filter.

Note: Manual selection overrides filters. For example, if you apply the Color Equal To Monochrome filter, and you have already manually selected various color printers, those manually selected printers remain in the folder.
