IT Specialists are available Monday - Friday from 0800-1700. You can also send any questions or feedback to DKL by filling out this online form.
Yes, you can change the print options such as single sided, in color, stapled, hole punched, etc. before sending to the printer.
Print jobs are sent to a queue on the default printer (or the one you selected), where they will stay for 5 hours until released.
Look for your NPS user name. If you used a Public workstation, look for the workstation name. Example: pillar4a.
For 5 hours or until released by the user. Print jobs older than 5 hours are automatically purged from the queue.
Check that you’re at the printer where you sent the job. For the Public computers, if you sent it to the default printer, make sure the passcode card matches the computer station.
For the NPS login computers, there may be an issue with your Secure Print Passcode, and you may have to reset it.
Yes, print jobs can be deleted from the printer. Print jobs not released will be automatically purged in 5 hours.
Yes, you can resend the job to another printer. Printers 1-4 are on the 1st floor. Printers 6 and 7 are on the 2nd floor.
No. Once a job has been sent to the printer, it is deleted from the server. Select the number of copies in the Print Options before sending to the printer.
You may have to resend a job should the printing be interrupted in some way. Ask staff at the General Information Desk to clear print jams. Please don’t try to clear them yourself.
