Go greener with your printers

Posted on Friday, August 31, 2018

This summer, Information Technology went greener with a new printing procedure. This is more environmentally friendly, eliminating the high number of documents that may be printed unnecessarily, filling up the recycling bins.

The new procedure requires the user to take additional manual steps. This means that once the user selects Print on their computer, they have to go to the printer to confirm the printing job:

  1. Select the Jobs icon
  2. From this screen, select Held job
  3. The list of pending printing jobs will be displayed
  • Tap to select your name
  • Select the document you want to print or tap Print all at the top right
  • Select your document; the message Print job will be displayed.

Documents are held in the printing queue for 12 hours. If they are not printed during this time, they will be removed from the queue. For example, if you send a document to the printer at 9 a.m., you can print it until 9 p.m.
