    This was my understanding of DiDA too... but the ICT HoD is insistant they print out 40 questionnaires..

    Oh well, only got till end of the school year then he's gone
    They don't need to print out 40 a simple table will do, respondees along the top, questions down the side. They have to do that for the next stage anyway.

    Why can't they just make up 40 results? as far as i can see its only asking them to "Survey 40 people" no where does it say "print out 40..."

    But Head of ICT insisting they have to
    you can create a questionnaire in Moodle

    Re: Print manager plus 6

    Use PMP here too I think its great. Used PCcounter in my old place and had alot of counting errors and printing getting canceled fr no good reason. PMP seems to co-operate with alot more different printer drivers.

    On another not currently we're run a system of 10 pages per week and no printing in colour unles you ask your teacher and they ask me to unpause the colour printer.

    Do you think it will work with secondary level to charge higher prices for colour and mark it on the printers and give them say 40 credits a month mono costing 1 credit colour costing say 4 credits? Will they think about what printer they send they're print job to or am I better staying with the currnt system ?

    My head of ICT said try it if you think it will work so you can guess what he thinks

    Could you perhaps specify what you didn´t like about PMP? And which version were you using?
    I am looking at PMP, PaperCut and Pcounter, and I´m trying to decide which one to buy ...

    (Yes, I do realize this thred is bit old, but I´m hpoing you´re still following it :-))

    Re: Print manager plus 6

    I have used PMP, but found that it was unreliable. This is on a thin client network, via Citrix. Got onto the manufacturer & they are aware of the problem, but never came back with a solution. This may have been sorted now, but I have moved on to pcounter. This isn't as nice, because all actions are on a per printer basis. With PMP you could have action on a per user basis, much nicer.
    The staff moan about it, but I just say it's one of those things. They don't argue about it.
    At least pcounter works over a Citrix environment.
    Not tried Papercut myself.

    I used PMP on Citrix for two years without a problem (that I am aware of at any rate).

    I have since moved to PyKota which is a lot more flexible and open source so has saved a considerable amount of cash.

    I can't remember what the problem was with PMP now, as it was probably over two years ago. Old age or something, lol.
    Thanks for the tip on PyKota, I will have a look.
