Approach 3 - Print via email
Users can submit a print job from any computer or device at hand, such as workstation PCs, laptops and notebooks, mobile devices and tablets via email. Users send a print job as an email attachment to a specified email address. The print job is then made available for the user to collect at any printer under the printing system. Supported documents include Microsoft Office, OpenOffice, PDF, JPG, GIF, PNG, TIF, BMP, TXT, and it is only possible to print A4 and A3.
Please note, a more complex or long document is unfit for this service. Such as you want to print one sheet of Excel document, several PPT slides into one page, a part of a document, and the file with size greater than 20MB. In which case you will need to print in the standard way by logging on to a campus lab computer.
