 The Advanced "Supplies: Percentage" filter option is not working as expected for "toner cartridge level" or "hole punch box" values. 



Tracking Toner Cartridge Levels

If tracking toner levels in an environment with multiple vendors, use the "Supplies: Black Toner Percentage" filter.

NOTE: Please keep the "device type" option on a parent folder selected to the same value
as the child folders. This will cause missing devices inside the folders.

This filter folder should display all printers on the network showing between 5 and 19% remaining toner.

Filter settings can be applied to any number of the devices for devices equipped with CMYK toner cartridges.  


Filters not recommended for multi-vendor MFP environments: 

    • - Cartridge Levels, Black (CYM); Capacity – This value recommended for single function printers (SFPs).
    • - Cartridge Levels, (CYMK) Percentage – This value recommended for single function printers (SFPs).
    • - Supplies: Percentage – To be avoided for any multi-vendor
