The app is now set up and is ready for printing

Example of  Print Session

On the PrinterOn main menu. To print a sample document.  The documents would normally be hosted on a cloud storage service such as Microsoft One Drive, Dropbox, or Google Drive.  This assumes that you have configured some cloud storage already.  This example will print a document stored on OneDrive.

From the PrinterOn main menu, choose documents, and then choose your source.  In this example, we choose OneDrive.

This will link you to that service.  You may be required to login to that system at this point.  You will be presented with files and folders stored on your cloud storage service.  Your Experience at this point will vary.  Choose the document that you wish to print.

The document is sent to print and you get a notification stating this (Job Started). You will also get a notification that the Equitrac System has received your print job and it is ready for you to release (Job Success).

Please keep in mind that the Equitrac Service at CCRI will keep your documents for 72 hours and it will then be discarded.  To physically print the document, visit any CCRI Library or Academic Computer Lab.  You will login to a printer using your Banner ID code and you will release the print job.  Lab and Library assistants can help you with this step if needed.

The print history can show you any documents that you have sent from your device.
