A printing system, known as the DocuTech Printing System, permits cite administrators to discreetly enable and disable printing of three types of administration pages for each job printed:

1) Break, Page-a single page printed with job related information,
e.g. job, owner, job name, job comment, etc.)

       2) Error, Page-1, 2 or 3 pages of job related errors and warnings detected while processing a job. The number of pages is dependent on the actual number of errors detected; no error pages are printed if no errors are detected.

       3) Job Accounting Page-a single page printed with job billing information, e.g. the number and charge for simplex prints, duplex prints, binds, etc.

Currently, each of these administration pages is printed simplex on a separate sheet of paper. Separate sheets of paper for each page is preferred if each page is sent to a different end user. In one example, the break page remains with the job output while the job accounting page is sent to the function responsible for billing the customer. Putting each job administration page on a separate sheet wastes paper. It would be desirable to provide site administrators with more control over the creation of job administration pages so that the same can be printed in an efficient manner minimizing paper waste.
