MPrint Mobile App Overview

Resolution

Overview

The MPrint Mobile App is designed to provide a simple way to print using the Follow Me virtual print queue. Follow Me is a virtual print queue that holds your documents for up to 24 hours, letting you control where and when they get released. 

With the MPrint Mobile App, you are able to:

  • Upload docs to Follow Me from your phone
  • Release Follow Me jobs to any printer on campus with a yellow MPrint print queue label
  • Delete jobs from the Follow Me queue
  • Detect printers near you to release your print job

Note: The MPrint Mobile App leverages Bluetooth beacons on printers to show a list of available nearby printers. If nearby printers do not have beacons, you can release your documents by using the MPrint Mobile App to scan the QR codes on any Campus Computing Sites or MiWorkspace printer.
