Hey Experts,

I am setting up an Mac OD server and I had a question about setting up printers so that they are automatically added for users.  I can add printers for users no problem.  The question I have is, we have 4 offices and our staff travel between these 4 offices.  Is there a way with OD to have only the printers in the office they are in show up?  I know I can setup a group for each office and add the set office printer for each offices group, but I am wandering if there is some magic way when a user travels from office A to office B that they no longer see office A's printers and only see office B's printers.  Then when they return to office A, they only see office A's printers again.  

Anyone know if this is possible?

Thanks
G

This will only work if they aren't using a mobile computer.
Currently the only options to manage printers from OD is from a computer list or "workgroup" by location or a user list (group) or individual user.  None of these methods are effective for mobile users that have multiple buildings.

I would suggest giving that user access to all of the printers he / she would need for all buildings they visit if it is a mobile device.

  If it is a different computer at each site that is easy to setup by computer lists and just give the list access to the printers close by.

That is what I was afraid of.  Thanks for the concise and quick answer!
