Departmental Support - SOAR - Cloud Printing

For the 2015 Summer SOAR session CFYE is making printing available to SOAR advisers and staff from their Windows or Mac OS X computers. The product that CFYE is utilizing for this is called "Google Cloud Print" and is a part of the UW Madison's Google Apps for Education solution.


Cloud Printing at SOAR

   Getting setup for Google Cloud Printing is a two step process. The first step, "Requesting Authorization" will give you access to print to the printers. The second step, "Compatibility and Setup Information" will guide you through preparing your device for use with Google Cloud Print.
 


Requesting Authorization

As a SOAR Adviser, you can request access to print to any of the printers at SOAR. Printers are grouped by the college that will be its primary user. Access to these printers are governed by "Google Groups". Once you are a member of the correct Google Group you will have access to print to that college's printers through Google Cloud Print. Detailed instructions for this process are available here: Departmental Support - SOAR - Requesting access to Google Cloud Print groups 

There is a Google Group for each school (Listed and linked below). Clicking on one of these groups will allow you to "Apply for membership" to the group if you are not already a member:

School of Nursing
School of Pharmacy
SOAR Alumni Room
SOAR Consultant Room

Detailed instructions for this process are available here: Departmental Support - SOAR - Requesting access to Google Cloud Print groups
