Unable to add finisher to existing printer

Jump to solution
Product Name: PrintSafe/C8070
Operating System: Windows Server 2012 R2 x64

The staple and hole punch options are not available to the users on a C8070 with Advanced finisher. How can a finsiher and features be added to the printer in the PrintSafe "Printer" menu? Thanks

If I had to guess I would assume you used the Xerox GPD driver and set it to Basic Print node instead of setting it device specific, and for that reason there is no finisher, typically basic print mode is used for poll groups, where you send the job into a group, and can retrieve from any printer in the poll group, and those printers can be totally different, so setting hole punch would fault the job on finisherless devices, so you simply don't get the option.

If that is the issue you can just go into the printer properties of the driver and set it to the device model
