Hello folks, those of you in Anderson Hall have likely seen the change on the touchscreens of the new Canon copiers. This is the new system that we are moving to for all copiers in Anderson, Bloedel, and Winkenwerder halls.
At this stage we are now in a ~2 week full test of the new accounting software and are looking for feedback both good and bad. We want to discover any and all issues that we can so that we can resolve them and make sure this product will work in our environment.
If you haven’t already, please visit one of the two existing copiers (Anderson 115 and 2nd floor hallway) to enroll your Husky card. Tap your card on the reader and the copier will prompt you for your NETID credentials. After linking your card, a simple tap logs you in to release any pending jobs. You’ll also find a “use copier” button which takes you to the scanning and copying features.
If you forget your Husky card or don’t have one of the newer ones, you can manually log in each time with your NETID credentials. Alternatively, if you have a smartphone handy and are connected to “University of Washington” WiFi you can use the URL below to access the mobile print release system to select the destination copier and print your job(s). If you find this handy I highly recommend bookmarking this URL on your device for ease of future use.
For printing from your SEFS computer, you should see two new queues for this system:
PaperCut B&W Queue
PaperCut Color Queue
These are universal queues, meaning they are not directly linked to any specific destination. Jobs sent to them can be retrieved from any copier in the system, which as mentioned above will ultimately be all the copiers in the 3 buildings. If the copier you walk up to is busy or down for some reason there’s no need to re-send your job. Simply go to a different copier and release your job there.
For non-SEFS computers you can upload image or PDF files for printing by visiting the following site (from on-campus only at this time). This eliminates any need for setting up print queues on your personal computer and the hassle of getting re-authenticated. After uploading, simply proceed to the copier of your choice to release and retrieve your job.
If you have any trouble during this test, keep in mind the old queues are still functional and can be used as a fallback, but please do let me know what issues you run into. Note, due to the changes the old Canon secure print system is currently broken and jobs cannot be released. Since PaperCut effectively achieves this functionality there is no plan to fix this at this time.
Please send any comments, questions, or suggestions about this system to firstname.lastname@example.org so they can be quickly addressed. Thanks!
