Managing MPrint queues


MPrint's info site offers a way to manage printer queues. The site offers more information on the individual printers, help with troubleshooting the queues themselves, the ability to disable the printer queue in the case of an out of service printer, or enable a queue for a printer when it is ready to go online again.

    One of the more important pieces of information the expanded view offers is Queue Enabled, which can tell if you if the printer queue is actively accepting jobs or not.

    • Building will bring up a Google Maps page to show you where on campus the building is located.
