If your printers are in different subnets than end user computers (making it so you cannot use the “Enable Printers Near me: Printer IP Based” option), you can create subnet objects with IP ranges of the users in a location, and then place the subnet object in a folder in the tree with the printer objects that are near the end user.  When the end user opens the Printer Install Portal, it will open the parent folder of the subnet object that contains the end user’s IP address.
