User12,

Can you elaborate a bit? Are you wondering how to install automation on another workstation? or installing the NiceLabel print module?

Can I group printers in nicelabel automation actions to give print to more than one printer at the same time?

Thanks for the reply Kyleodonnell. If the number of printers is obtained on a variable, can we write some loop statements to do the printing action for all the printers?

User12,

If you open one label and have multiple print actions, it will loop through all of those actions based and will send it to a printer that you define in your variable. We do have a for loop actions however it requires LMS enterprise to use.You can contact sales.americas@nicelabel.com to learn more
