  • Track your "Environmental Impact" every time you login.
  • If your job fails to print, PawPrints will tell you why.
  • Android users may upload documents to print.

Compared to Before:

  • No more "Print Locater" or "Mac App" for installing printers. Only install them once.
  • No more installing printers by location. Campus queues replace all previous printers.
  • Web release does a lot more now. Choose your printer at release, ideally while standing at the printer itself for increased security.
  • No more separate Law School release.
  • No more separate D-Code release, or separate printers (these were marked by "DP").
  • History and refunds have a new look.
  • Dollars, not pages, but rates and free quota haven't changed. Grads still get their extra pages.
  • New app runs on your desktop, which shows balance and has link to release jobs.
