Limitations of Web Print

Web Print uses the default mode that our print server uses for the printer. You will not be able to change any of fine-grain settings of the device (such as changing single to double sided modes or vice versa – depending on the default settings, select paper trays, or use printer functions such as collating and stapling). If you need to use those modes, you will have to set up your computer to print directly through our print server with an appropriate driver.

Web Print only supports a limited set of file types for uploading. (Word documents and pdfs.)

Printing to select departmental office printers

A few primary departmental office printers have been set up for printing through Web Print. If you have been added to the group that can use the printer, it will appear as a choice on the printer list in Web Print. You will need to know the name of the printer you are trying to print to. Our printer names will usually have the room number of the printer included it its name.
