Instructions to Add Follow-You-Print-Q on Windows Device


The University of South Australia is upgrading to a new print management solution called ‘PaperCut’ which also provides ‘follow you printing’.

The transition to the new solution will occur in stages through until the end of 2023 and during this time both the old and new solutions will be supported. Signage will be placed on printers once they have been migrated to PaperCut.

During this transition stage, AskIT pages will highlight where instructions differ from the old solution and when utilising PaperCut.
