How to view the status of the submitted work

You can check the status of the work submitted via WebPrint in the last 4 days.

The name of the job corresponds to the name of the file submitted followed by the submission date.

Job status and its meaning:

  • Waiting - it is being processed so it can be sent later to the print queue
  • Sent - it was placed in the print queue successfully and it is ready to be printed[3];
  • Printed - it was already printed
  • Error in document - there was an error while processing the document. Please check if the file is corrupted or has some sort of protection that restricts printing. You can also try converting the file to a PDF. If it was already in PDF format, try repeating the conversion.
