Redirect Printers

Attention

This feature only applies to Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premise installations.

To allow for direct printing in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premise of reports with a Document Creator layout, you can set up redirect printers for your local server-printers in the Document Creator Redirect Printer List page.

While normally it is not possible to directly print to local printers (due to restrictions implied by Business Central), with Document Creator this becomes possible by setting up a new redirect printer. You can conveniently add redirect printers for all local printers using the Add redirect printers for all local printers action.

Finally, you can use these redirect printers in the Printer Selections page, to specify which printer to use for specific users and/or reports.

Example

In the example below report 72102 Sales - Invoice will be printed to the Ready 4U Printer when printing a report with a Document Creator layout selection. All other reports with a Document Creator layout selection will be printed to the My Company Printer.
