We have a sharp AR-M455n and we want to use the built in print accounting function on community computers (shared log-in). We want to know if there is a way to disable the 'Always Use This Code' radio button and force users to enter a code every time they print.

I find PaperCut print logger less intrusive...
If there is a way to disable that radio button, it is called driver admin package and it lets you select which options to hode from users, but you should always test even if options sheets seem to be working.

It does not look like the PaperCut print logger is going to work for what we need. We have multiple people using the same machine under one login. (as many as 40 users, and it's just not feasable to add logins for all of them.). That's why we need them to enter a code when they print.  I also can't find a driver admin package for that model.

is it feasible to create accounts for all of them instead of creating accounts on a printer?

They are already assigned copy codes. So yes, that makes the most sence. I can see we are going to have to find another solution, with a 3rd party program or something. Thank you anyway.
