Printing to label printer


#1

I have a small question about printing to a label printer from a intuiface experience.

This is the scenario: When a customer logs in to the digital reception, the info they provide needs to be printed on a label. We are using an Ipad for the experience.

Do you guys have experience with certain label printers and the available options, like what kind of label printer (manufacturer and model), and do you use print to email or API, … Maybe you have an example of this…

Thanks in advance!

I don’t see any tips shared around using a label printer specifically.
but I know @melvyn_br once talked about how he managed to print in Intuiface XP. Here is the topic.
Also, there is a page on Intuiface Help Center about how to send content to a printer. You can check it out here.
I hope you’ll find what you are looking for.

Thank you for the information, I already found that info. The problem is that its on a iPad and you can’t use “share to folder” on a iPad.

So the method that @melvyn_br used won’t work for me, also I would like to limit the use of extra software as much as possible.
We are looking for other options like maybe using a windows tablet, but we haven’t found a tablet that meets our specifications and pricing.

Sorry, but you may want to consider using something else, as the ipad is pretty limited. A workaround to trying to achieve this on the ipad would be to use the share via the intuiface email, have it emailed to a default reception id from where you can print

Otherwise you need a windows tablet, the surface range comes in first, however, to suit your budget, there are 2 in 1s available, that can be a laptop and tablet as well.

I know, just need to convince some people of this internally. But i’m sure with the right documentation I wil convince them.

Do you have any additional tips for me about printing on windows in this situation?

@brecht You could use the share via email for the Ipad solution or alternatively you could use a folder monitoring software which prints anything inside the folder, You will need to setup the share via file system ia.

@brecht, it works pretty simple, you need a third party printing software that can print off a specific folder in the background automatically (the one I used allowed you to automatically print any new document detected in the specific folder). After it prints it deletes the document, so that the folder is always blank to detect a new incoming one.

Once you have the printing software setup, you use the share to folder asset in intuiface to store your print docs. Map this folder to the printing software, so anytime you capture anything from intuiface into this folder, the printing software picks it up - prints and deletes the copy.

Hope this makes sense.
