Supporting BYOD student wifi printing with PaperCut


PaperCut’s web print solution is a 100%
driverless and browser-based user printing solution
it works by allowing you to upload your documents to a server that then prints
for you. Today I’ll be giving you a quick demonstration of papercuts web print in
an education environment to show you just how simple it is for a student to
use. Web print reduces the work required to support students printing from their
own laptops by eliminating domain and printer configuration. When their laptop
is network connected, a student can access web print and start printing
immediately. To start, first open the PaperCut user web interface and then
the student will log in using their credentials. Here you can see summarized
information about your account such as the usage and the balance. You can access
this part of PaperCut with a standard URL. After authenticating, all documents
printed via web print will be charged to the student’s selected account. To access
web print, click the web print link in the navigation bar. Now, if you wish to
submit a job, select the printer you wish to use from the list here or
alternatively you can search for it using the quick find bar here. Select
this printer … In this screen, I can print multiple copies of the document I’m
about to upload. I now browse to the file I wish to print, selecting it for an
upload to the server. As you can see here PaperCut’s web print allows for
uploading many common document formats. Now, select upload and complete to submit
your document for printing. Now we’ll be taken back to the job status screen
where we can track the progress of our job. We can see when it has started
printing. A confirmation will be displayed once
PaperCut has printed the job. Web print data remains within the local network
and jobs are processed on the local server, not in the cloud where document
security is potentially a concern. For more information on PaperCut and its
