What is a confirmation page? Definition and usage

LAST UPDATE: July 30th, 2017

Definition

A confirmation page is a receipt to show a successful fax transmission.

It is another term for “fax receipt.”

Usage

When sending a fax, the receiving fax machine sends a signal saying “message entirely received” when the transmission is one.

When the sending fax machine gets the “message entirely received” message, it prints out a confirmation page.

The confirmation page contains date and time the transmission started and finished, who send the fax, information on where the fax was sent and may include a copy of the first page of the fax or even all pages of the fax.
