With uniFLOW Online, users can print confidential documents securely. All print jobs stay in the user’s personal secure print queue until they identify at a device and release them. This process provides maximum document security to the end user and the organization. Various submission options and integrations with third-party print services guarantee a user-friendly and flexible work environment.
My Print Anywhere enables print jobs to follow users from device to device, allowing print jobs to be released on any connected printer after successful user identification. Users can select which print jobs to release from a personal secure print list displayed directly on the device screen. The layout of the secure print queue can be configured for Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE, Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX and Canon imageRUNNER with AddOn Platform, providing an organization with the option to customize the look and feel according to its corporate identity. If required, finishing options may be altered directly at the device before printing, saving users valuable time. For non-Canon devices, the uniFLOW Release Station can be connected, providing My Print Anywhere functionality across a mixed fleet of devices.
The uniFLOW SmartClient guarantees seamless printing without additional configuration effort for the end user. It is a small client application installed on a user’s local PC which operates the print job management and processing. The uniFLOW SmartClient takes over some tasks such as storing print job information, providing print job lists and, depending on configuration, holding print jobs until a user identifies at a device before releasing print jobs which reduces unnecessary printouts. When moving to different sites, and even across international borders, the uniFLOW SmartClient will automatically download the printing configuration for each user’s current location. This means users only have to ‘file, print’ to one print queue regardless of where they are and what network printing resources are available. Moreover, users can still print securely, even when the connection to uniFLOW Online is interrupted.

Direct Secure Print provides secure My Print Anywhere functionality without using client software. The print job is sent directly and held at a Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE/ DX device; it will only be released after identification and print job selection. Nothing other than specified Canon drivers (available for Windows and Mac®) are required to submit and release print jobs securely. Users can view all their print jobs, including mobile print jobs, in a single queue from which each job can be released. Even if there is a network disruption, the job information will stay with the holder device, and users can still print, guaranteeing a stable and easy-to-use print infrastructure.

uniFLOW Online adds additional functionality to Universal Print by Microsoft and Chromebook™ printing, so organizations profit from enhanced document security and increased user productivity. Independent of the job submission pathway, finishing options for secure print jobs can be altered at the device.
uniFLOW Online integrates natively with Microsoft’s Universal Print, a cloud-based print service, and significantly extends its capabilities. Universal Print is designed to allow users to submit jobs from their Azure managed Windows 10 devices to printers managed and controlled by Azure Active Directory (AD).

Print job delegation allows print jobs to be handed over to colleagues. There could be multiple reasons it might be necessary to delegate print jobs e.g. a home office user delegates a contract needed by other colleagues in the office or a manager delegates letters to the secretary which are then printed and posted. When dealing with sensitive and personal information, ensuring that data is handled securely is of great importance.
Delegating a print job ensures that the document is transferred to the secure queue of the selected user. Once delegated, the recipient is notified via email, and the print job is available in their secure queue for release. The print jobs are accounted for by the delegator.
