Are You Upgrading From Version 3.3 or Earlier?

As Jim2 v4.0 onwards features a new scripting engine behind the scenes, it is critical that those running earlier versions of Jim2 perform the upgrade custom scripts process, and read the latest technical requirements to move to the latest version of Jim2.

For existing Managed Print Services customers upgrading to the latest version from v4.0 or earlier, read the Managed Print Services System Administrators document, which outlines how to merge contract templates updates and more, in your transition to the latest version.
