Net-Print Find-Me Queues

Send a print job, then select where it will print when you get to a printer.

This article applies to: Net-Print


Net-Print users can send their jobs to a specific printer or get greater flexibility by sending to a Find-Me queue.

Users who print to these queues can then go to any ID Card Reader printer and release their print jobs there. Many users will find it simpler to just install these two queues and not install any specific printers. 

We strongly recommend that users install these two Find-Me queues.

As with all print jobs submitted through Net-Print, the document must be printed within two hours or the job will be deleted from the queue.

We have created two campus-wide Find-Me queues in the new system.

  • campus-bw (black and white)
  • campus-color

Printing to campus-bw

If you release your print job to a black and white printer, it will print as you would expect and will be charged the proper black and white fee for that printer.

If you release your print job to a color printer, it will print in black and white and you will still be charged the proper black and white fee for that printer.

Printing to campus-color

You will not be able to release your print job to a black and white printer.

When you release your print job to a color printer, you will be charged the correct amount based on the content of each page:

  • The pages of your print job that contain color will be charged the proper color fee for that printer.
  • The pages of your print job that do not contain color will be charged the proper black and white fee for that printer.

When printing to a Find-Me queue, the estimated cost shown in the "select the print action" dialog box may be wrong. See our Troubleshooting Tip: Unexpected Cost for details.
