This is done using "Transaction report print select setting" (page 8-6) in the key operator programs, and the setting is selected separately for single sending, broadcasting, receiving, and confidential reception.
TRANSMISSION AND RECEPTION USING THE POLLING FUNCTION This function can only be used if the other machine is a Super G3 or G3 machine and supports the polling function. The polling function allows your machine to call a fax machine that has document data set and initiate reception of the document.

PROGRAMMING FREQUENTLY USED OPERATIONS This function allows you to store the steps of an operation, including the destination and scanning settings, into a program. This function is convenient when you frequently send documents, such as a daily report, to the same destination.
TRANSFERRING RECEIVED FAXES TO ANOTHER MACHINE WHEN PRINTING IS NOT POSSIBLE (FORWARDING FUNCTION) When printing is not possible because of a paper, toner, or other problem, you can transfer received faxes to another fax machine if that machine has been appropriately programmed in your machine. This function can be conveniently used in an office or other workplace where there is another fax machine connected to a different phone line.
FAXING DIRECTLY FROM A COMPUTER (PC-FAX FUNCTION) This feature can only be used when the printer function is a standard feature or has been installed as an option. The PC-FAX driver can be installed in your computer to enable documents created on your computer to be faxed directly from your computer screen.
Normally these functions require that the other fax machine be a similar Sharp machine; however, F-code transmission enables these functions to be performed with any other machine that supports F-code transmission.
This machine supports the "F-code" standard as established by the ITU-T*. Operations such as relay broadcast transmission and confidential transmission previously could only be performed with another Sharp fax machine; however, F-Code communication makes it possible to perform these operations with fax machines of other manufacturers that support F-Code communication.
If the condition settings screen appears, touch the [ADDRESS BOOK] CORPO.TPS SHARP GROUP address (refer to page 1-4). If the sub-address and passcode have been programmed into the one- touch key, the following steps are not needed.

G Refer to pages 6-10 through 6-13 for the procedures for creating, editing, and deleting F-code confidential memory boxes.
PRINTING A DOCUMENT RECEIVED TO AN F-CODE CONFIDENTIAL MEMORY BOX Faxes received in an F-Code confidential memory box are printed out by entering the PRINT PIN 4-digit passcode (0000 to 9999) that was programmed when the box was created. Printing of the confidential faxes takes precedence over any other stored jobs.
"relay request transmission". NOTES G This machine does not support Sharp's previous relay broadcast function, which uses the programmed sender's number and relay ID code. G To create an F-code relay broadcast memory box and program, edit, and delete end receiving machines, refer to pages 6-10 to 6-14.
F-CODE RELAY BROADCAST TRANSMISSION USING THE F-CODE RELAY BROADCAST FUNCTION (your machine is the relay machine) When a document is received from a relay request machine, the F-code relay broadcast function transmits the document to the end receiving machines using a memory box only if the sub-address and passcode sent by the relay request machine are correct.

USING AN EXTENSION PHONE You can connect a telephone to the machine and use it as an extension phone to place and receive calls like any normal phone. You can also activate fax reception from the phone (remote operation). NOTE If you connect a combination telephone/answering machine to the machine, you will not be able to use the answering machine function.
RECEIVING A FAX AFTER TALKING (MANUAL RECEPTION) When an extension phone is connected to the machine and you have set the reception mode to "MANUAL RECEPTION", you can talk to a person sending a fax manually and then begin fax reception without breaking the connection.
Speak to the other party when they mode answer. After the other party switches to fax reception, press your [START] key. Replace the extension phone.

The Transaction Report informs you of the result of the operation. When the machine prints a Transaction Report, be sure to check the contents.
VIEWING THE COMMUNICATION ACTIVITY REPORT Your machine keeps a record of the most recent 99 transactions (both transmissions and receptions) that were performed. The record includes the date of the transaction, the other party's name, the duration, and result. You can have the report automatically printed when the number of transactions exceeds 99, or at a specified time.
PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS If you experience a problem with the fax function, first check the following table.
