Find-me (Mobile) Printing

Back in October 2015, ITS announced our Find-me printing service that allows for mobile printing on multi-function printers on campus. This includes, laptops, tablets, and phones with Google’s “Cloud Print” service turned on.

We set it up as a “Find Me” printing environment, where you can print via Google Cloud Print and then walk to your nearest MFP (the multi

function printers with a touchscreen) to release your print job .

This saves you from having to decide which printer to choose,
and also prevents your print job from printing out until you are there at
the printer.
 
MFPs (multi-function printers) that are available to students include Old Main all floors, Library 2nd floor, and Olin 1st floor, Sorensen (ITS Office) and many more campus department MFPs.

Here is a how-to document (PDF) with step-by-step for your device: Using Google Cloud Printing from your Mobile Device.

The video below shows the process at Augustana, using an iPhone as the example for the client.  Stop by ITS with your device if you want help printing using this method.
