Important notes

Job User ID

Jobs submitted to the cash stations will be displayed using the users login name, not the name of the station the job was submitted from. For example if the user is using Webprint from Lib04 the job will show up as the user and not the Station ID Lib04.

Billing

The price calculator for WebPrint has been turned off so the student will not receive incorrect pricing calculations. The Pcounter billing will still happen and the students will be billed as per normal.

Cash printing holds

The cash printing holds have been changed to 4 hours for the WebPrinting queues.

Known problems

  • PDF documents embedded in a web browser may or may not work - ITS recommends saving the document to the desktop and printing the PDF directly.
  • Web pages that use a link generated by a search or require a log-in will not work - ITS recommends saving the document as a HTML file before printing it.
  • Pages print as set-up in the document - ITS recommends for:
    PowerPoint (Impress, or other equivalents) print one slide per page.
    Excel (and equivalent spreadsheets) do not allow for fine tuning during the print process. The document must be saved with the print area/page breaks already set.
