Our customer want to work with "accounting" and "follow-me".
is that a good solution?

What is the difference between "Card/Identity Numbers" and "Card/ID PIN (digits only)"?

In PaperCut we call it find me printing. And yes it works
I assume by Accounting you mean print and copy tracking?
That will work as well
Mobility printing is just the way that print jobs get submitted. Jobs are still tracked

oké, and do you know if there are other api calls for the accounting? Now i set up an external database (yes i'm brave :) )for getting the print/copy information of last month / week/ day /hour

You don't need an external database
Just schedule a CSV report

You can run the reports every 24 hours
but not more than that
Wouter Schoofs
@WouterSchoofs
Oct 06 2017 10:56 UTC

reports can be emailed by PaperCut or placed in a directory for a sccript to pick up
See example 3 on the above web page
