Report to printer - Paper tray selection

Project description

Report to printer - Paper tray selection

Extends the module Report to printer (base_report_to_printer) to add the printers trays.

It detects trays on printers installation plus permits to select the paper source on which you want to print directly.

You will find this option on default user config, on default report config and on specific config per user per report.

This allows you to dedicate a specific paper source for example for preprinted paper such as payment slip.


Considering that you already use the module Report to printer, you just have to install this extension.


To configure this module, you need to:

  • Update the CUPS printers in Settings > Printing > Update Printers from CUPS
  • If you want to print a report on a specific tray, you can change their “Paper Source” in Settings > Printing > Reports
  • If you want to print a report on a specific tray for a user, you can change their “Paper Source” in Settings > Printing > Reports in Specific actions per user
  • Users may also select a default tray in their preferences


There is no special usage, once configured, reports are printed in the select tray. When no tray is configured for a report and a user, the default tray setup on the CUPS server is used.
