hi,

recently found out its possible to set custom notifications in the counters section. If I'm right the user gets notified for example when print limit of 100 pints is reached.
Why not use this with the already built in function of email or sms to notify the booth operator when paper is running out?
Kind regards
Patrick

    Making this via dnp or Mitsubishi sdk to read out the printers paper stock is way more complicated. So just telling spark booth send me an email after 350 prints would me easier. Lets make this real!

    YES but remember that it all falls back on the person running the booth and makes sure they RESET it for each event... OR is set up with the paper/media count at 0 when the paper/media is replaced each time...

    Those numbers have nothing to do with the printer and only count the number of prints sent to the printer... If you start out with a partially used roll of paper/media, the count will not be correct.

    ...and you would need a internet connection for the booth to be able to send an email. It might be a better idea (or both) to have an option for Sparkbooth to pop up an onscreen message "Please call the attendant over"

    I can have it so it checks if there is an internet connection before
    emailing or texting. If there is no connection, it will display a
    notification.

    @joe
    I'm aware of this but thats just a thing of routine.

    @rob: the popup is already possible. simply add a counter.
