2023 has arrived, and hopefully everyone is off to a good start. Many of us are returning to our offices after a holiday break, which means once again using our Xerox® printer(s) on a daily or frequent basis.
To help your ‘stay healthy’ goals for the year, you may want to add a hand washing reminder to your workplace with the Clean Hands Reminder App for your VersaLink®, AltaLink® and PrimeLink® printers. The app displays on the user screen when the device is inactive. When the user touches any portion of the screen or a button, the app exits to the home screen.
The Clean Hands Reminder app is a friendly, non-intrusive, screen-saver type reminder to maintain proper hygiene located on the screen of your printer, visible to all users. It is a simple, silent reminder for users to protect themselves and co-workers. The app provides a tool for maintaining a clean and safe work environment.
The app can be added to compatible printers in under 2 minutes. It is free and works with any ConnectKey enabled printer with EIP v3.5 or higher. (Please note the app is not compatible with the Xerox i-Series or older devices.) The app is available globally with titles and descriptions in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Turkish and Russian.
To install on your compatible devices, download the Clean Hands Reminder app from the Xerox App Gallery’s General section. For your convenience there is a 2 minute “How To” video to walk you through installing the app. This video is available to watch on Xerox Support’s YouTube channel or via the QR code below.
To maximize the benefit of the Clean Hands Reminder app, ensure that you have:
1. Set the app to be the default service on your device (example: Entry Screen Default, Walkup Screen Setting)
2. Set the user interface timeout to the minimum (example: touch user interface system timeout, system timeout for the device control panel)
3. Set Energy Saver to the longest possible setting (example: Power Saver, Low Power Setting at 60 minutes)
Please consult your printer model’s user guide for specific details. User guides can be found on the Xerox Support site.
Please also visit the Xerox Print Devices Cleaning Guidance site for ways to keep the external surfaces of your printers clean to help maintain a healthy workplace.
Here’s to a healthy 2023!
