Hi,

We have a staff workstation with printers installed and shared among the client workstations using Windows sharing (i.e. "\\staff\printer") method.

Let's say the client workstations are named as A and B, and 1 print job is submitted to the shared printer from each of the client workstation.  Is it possible that user currently working with client workstation A only can see print jobs he submitted but not the print job submitted from client workstation B?

All staff and client workstations are using Windows 7 Professional.

don't think you can do that, however depending on the security settings - USER A can only delete/pause etc their own jobs.

I think the purpose is so you can see what jobs are ahead of you in the queue and how long you might need to wait - or who you should yell at to get your job out.
