SmartPrint Print Center: Release Print Jobs

Another feature of Print Center is the ability to remotely release a print job.

After uploading a file in Print Center, you could go to any SmartPrint release station, swipe your ACCESS card and print your file.  Alternatively, you could release the file while in Print Center.  Follow the instructions below to learn how.

Note:  Your print jobs must be release within 2 hours, or they will be removed from the print pool.

Select print job(s) to be printed by putting a check next them.  You will also need to search for a printer to send your print job. Click on the area above the Print button to reveal a search box. 



In the search box, type in the name or location of a printer.  Some popular searches are library 1st for printers on the first floor of the library, or law for printers in the Law School. You can type the name of your residence hall for residence hall printers.


In our example, we type library lower for printers on the lower level of the library.  As you type in the search box, and matching printers are found, they will be displayed in the pop-up above the search box.



When the desired printer is displayed, click to select it.


After you have selected your printer, the updated cost to print your job(s) will be displayed. Click the Print button to release the print job to the desired printer.


  A confirmation message will be displayed.  Click the Confirm button to pay for your print job(s) and send it directly to the selected printer.  Promptly go to the printer and pick up your print job to prevent it from being mixed up with other print jobs.  


Incompatible Printer error


 If you receive an incompatible printer error or you see a yellow diamond icon next to the printer, you selected a Black & White printer for a Color job or vise-versa.  The print job was either sent to SmartPrint BW Printer or SmartPrint Color Printer using a computer with the popup client and print driver.   Print jobs sent this way can only be released to their respective printer types- SmartPrint BW Printer jobs can only be released to Black & White printers, SmartPrint Color Printer jobs can only be released to Color printers.  Note: files uploaded through Print Center or files emailed to MobilePrint can be released to either Black & White or Color printers and will be charged accordingly.
