3. Printing

Note: Before sending a print job, check if "Color" or "Gray scale" is selected. The default configuration is color, which might not be wanted and can lead to higher cost per page.
After sending the print job, choose the user account to be charged. Now you can go to any of the multifunction printer in the printing center, corridors or the library. Touch your card to the card reader on the printer and choose from the on-screen options.

Choose "Print Release" and the one or all of the print jobs from the list.
At this point, you can still change from color to grayscale and from one-sided to double-sided printing.
Choose "Print". The print jobs will now be printed. Don't forget to log out from the printer.
