You can upload a document to be printed in your print room from any windows program. The first time you do this you will need to create account for the Skyline Cloud Printer. If you will be using your corporate user name and password to log into Skyline Cloud Printer the procedure is slightly different. Please refer to the section on Creating a LDAP Account for more information.

To upload a document & send to your print room:
