auto tray switching when printing

Jump to solution
Product Name: AltaLink C8030 / C8035 / C8045 / C8055 / C8070 Color Multifunction Printer
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

Im printing to our 8070 with tray one and two set to 11x17 plain paper. 

I would like it to switch to the second tray when the first one runs out of paper. 

any suggestions? I cannot find auto tray switching in the web interface.

Auto tray switching is on for jobs that don't specify a tray. So if you tell the driver to print to tray 2 and it has 11*17 it will empty the tray and stop.

If you tell the driver to print on 11*17 it will print to a tray with that in it, and when it empties it, it will move on to the next tray with 11*17 in it. The order in which the trays go is the priority (1 lowest is top priority) of the tray. 2 is whether the device should allow switching with that tray (You disable switching for things like letterhead or some other tray you don't want people to use by accident)
