Can I include the total cost on the message window that appears when a rule is triggered?

If you have a rule configured to send an e-mail, or display a message when a rule is triggered, you can include specific variables in the message to show the computer name, total pages, a total cost etc.

Here are those variables, which can also be found in the Print Audit 6 Help.

  • %totalpages - Total number of pages in the job.
  • %colorpages - Total number of color pages in the job.
  • %monopages - Total number of b/w pages in the job.
  • %totalunits - Total number of units in the job. Units are different from pages only if you use a pricing option other than "per page" or "per paper size".
  • %colorunits - Total number of color units in the job.
  • %monounits - Total number of b/w units in the job.
  • %totalcost - Total cost of the job.
  • %monounitcost - The b/w unit cost used for the job.
  • %colorunitcost - The color unit cost used for the job.
  • %addedcosts - Any added costs accumulated from cost modifiers.
  • %userbwbalance - The b/w balance left for the user. Balances can be pages, or currency.
  • %userbalance - The total balance remaining for the user.
  • %usercolorbalance - The color balance remaining for the user.
  • %title - The document name being printed.
