Universal Print wants to eliminate most print failures automatically. For failures that cannot be eliminated completely, we want to make it more informative for admins to troubleshoot the issue.

Universal Print: Secure release with QR code on Microsoft Office mobile app
Secure release prevents waste from unnecessary printing and maintains user privacy by holding their jobs until they show-up at the printer. Universal Print will allow secure release to be configured for any printer. Users can retrieve their print jobs by scanning a QR Code and using the Microsoft Office mobile app. Users need to be authenticated with their work or school account. QR code-based release will work with both Universal Print ready printers and printers using the Universal Print connector. We may add more secure release options in the future.
