Many of the larger multifunction printer/copier/scanners like the Ricoh, Kyocera and Xerox machines offer print tracking and secure printing.  Implementing this functionality is done on a per printer department and is typically set up by the manufacturer and maintained by your department administrator.  Below is some general guidance, but if you don't know your code you may need to consult with your department administrator.

Print tracking allows a department to track how much printing is done by a group or individual.  Secure printing gives you the option to secure a printed document with a code that must be input on the printer itself before it is printed (avoiding confidential documents sitting around at the printer).

Step 2: Click on the ellipsis button (...) beside Secure print (highlighted in yellow on the screenshot below).

To print a document:

Print from the application as you normally do. If you are prompted with the Accounting window, make sure that you enter your User ID, select your Account Type as "Group Account" (NOT "default group account"  in the drop down menu and enter your Account ID in the next field (this information was given to you by the printer Administrator and is NOT your secure code you set up).  Note that once you have entered this information, it will be automatically saved for you the next time you print.

Go to the printer and release the job by selecting the third button down on the far left of the photocopier screen.  Select the tab Secure Print jobs, find your print job and select it.  Then enter the secure print code you made in step 2 above.  Push the release job button found towards the top right of screen.
