Overview The MPrint Mobile App is designed to provide a simpler way to print, by taking advantage of Follow Me Printing. Follow Me is a virtual print queue that holds your documents for up to 24 hours, letting you control where and when they get released. Follow Me printing minimizes frustration from accidentally printing to the wrong printer, printing to a device that is jammed or out of toner, or having someone accidentally grab your document before you get to the printer. With the MPrint Mobile App, you are able to:
Whether you are located on campus or working remotely, you can fax a document using an MPrint-supported Xerox Multifunction printer that is set up with a fax line. Your options are different depending on whether you are using a Mac or Windows device. First, if you have not already done so, you will need to install the printer you wish to use. Important!
Use the MPrint Installer to send documents to nearby printers or to networked printers across campus.
Pre-ordering your poster print saves you time and money. When you pre-order your poster, experienced professionals will review your file, print your poster, and package it up so that all you have to do is pick it up at the Fishbowl (Angell Hall Campus Computing Site).
