Add copy or send function to ACS Printer Output

Please add copy or send options to ACS Printer Output. The original reports would need to stay in the Outque you are copying from.

Use Case:

This would allow us to move reports from one partition to another, particular if needed to store on an ancillary system for users to review.

    After further consideration, we have decided to decline this RFE at this time. One option you have which would allow you to copy the file to the IFS in another system's partition would be to map a network drive to that partition. Then when downloading the printer output, select a location on the mapped network drive.

    IBM has received this requirement and is evaluating it. A response will be provided when evaluation is complete.

    Why not a Download option instead of Copy? Then a dialog could be opened with destination options similar to the Data Transfer function though more spool file related.
