                Printing from the App

    Most documents to be printed from a mobile device are stored on a cloud storage service such as Microsoft One Drive, Dropbox, and Google Drive.  This example will print a document stored on One Drive. From the PrinterOn main menu, choose documents, and then choose the source.

    This will link you to that service so 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 Equitrac Service at CCRI will keep your documents for 72 hours and will then be discarded if not released within that timeframe. To physically print the document, visit the Library or Academic Computer Lab, at any campus.  Login to a printer using your Banner ID code and release the print job.  Academic Computer 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.
