Collate means that when printing more than one copy of a multi-page document, the copies will print all pages of each copy before printing the second copy. They are sorted into a correctly assembled sequence – and so if you are printing multiple copies it will then print them as sets of documents, not as single pages.
Also, what is collated and uncollated? The difference between collated and uncollated is that collated means every page of your print job is kept in order. An uncollated print job is made up of pages not in order.
Keeping this in consideration, is collated the same as double sided?
It is the same in Word. If you have a document that consists of five pages, and you are printing multiple copies, you can either print them collated or normal.
How do you collate on a copy machine?
Select the “Collate” option on the copy machine. Enter the number of copies needed. Press “Start.” Collect the collated copies from the copy machine as it complete the copies.
