As the University pushes forward with the Future Facing Learning agenda, a question we frequently get asked in training is whether it is possible to print from the iPad to the MyPrint system.
The quick answer is Yes! But it’s a bit different from how you might normally print.
In a nutshell, you send a blank email from your iPad to a special email address, with the file(s) you want printing attached to the email. You can even specify whether you want to send it to a colour or a black and white printer.
You can attach multiple files in the following formats: Microsoft Office – Word, Excel & PowerPoint, Open Office – Writer, Calc & Impress, PDF, JPG, GIF, PNG and TIFF
The very quick guide:
- Use whatever app you use to send emails from your Teesside University email address, this can also be done from https://stone.tees.ac.uk.
- In the To box, use the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
- In the Subject box, use either p:Mono or p:Colour – These are case sensitive and tell the system which printer you want to use
- Attach your file(s).
- You can now go to the nearest MyPrinter and collect your print as normal.
