Re: Transmission Verification Report

HI Shelia. THere is a button marked as "function" on your fax machine and got to "set up". Press that and select the "print out" group. When you get in there you will see "reports"... select that and it will let you get into your reports mode. Make sure you have transmission turned off. You can set it up to print out every 50 faxes...that seems to work best for most people. You may have to dig around in those menus...but its in there. I just don't have one sitting in front of my right now. If you still can't find it, email me back and I will look monday when I am back at the shop.

Brother IntelliFax-2820 Plain Paper Laser Fax does not automatically print a transmission report each time we send a fax. Is there a way to automatically have that happen. We can't find it.

You need to set up the Transmission Verification Report and Journal Period in the menu table.
Press Menu/Set, 2, 4, 1.
Press Menu/Set, 2, 4, 2.
You can use the Transmission Report as
proof that you sent a fax. This report lists the
time and date of transmission and whether
the transmission was successful (OK). If you
select On or On+Image, the report will print
for every fax you send.
If you send a lot of faxes to the same place,
you may need more than the job numbers to
know which faxes you must send again.
Selecting On+Image or Off+Image will print
a section of the fax's first page on the report
to help you remember.
When the Verification Report is turned Off or
Off+Image, the Report will only print if there
is a transmission error, with ERROR in the
RESULT column.
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 4, 1.
2 Press ? or ? to select On, On+Image,
Off or Off+Image.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.
