Printing From a Mobile Device

GreenPrint Mobile

GreenPrint is now supporting mobile devices. Smartphones, tablets (iPads, etc.), and any mobile device capable of sending e-mail can send print jobs to the GreenPrint system. There is no software to install. Simply send the files as attachments to GreenPrint@dartmouth.edu from your Dartmouth e-mail account and the jobs will be available to retrieve like usual from any GreenPrint release station. Files can also be e-mailed from non-Dartmouth accounts after completing a system generated registration request. This service is available to any GreenPrint account holder (faculty and students). All print jobs sent through GreenPrint Mobile will print double-sided and will produce a black & white copy if released from a black & white printer and a color copy if printed from a color printer. Multiple attachements can be sent in a single e-mail, with each attachment becoming a separate print job in the queue. The e-mail message sent with the attachement(s) will also become a separate print job. The name of the attachment and the subject line of the e-mail will be the name of the jobs in the print queue.  

Please note: Service may vary slightly depending on the device's operating system and connectivity. The maximum file size may be limited by the sending e-mail system. Once you select print for a job in the queue there will be a several second delay between selection and actual printing.

How to Use GreenPrint Mobile

  1. Send or forward an e-mail to GreenPrint@dartmouth.edu with the document(s) you wish to print attached (see Supported Formats).
  2. If applicable, wait for GreenPrint to send you an "MobilePrint Notification: Please complete your email registration" e-mail and follow the directions. *This is a one-time process for each e-mail address you send print jobs from. During this process you will be prompted to enter your NetID and password on the Pharos Web Release page so that future jobs sent to GreenPrint from your address will be authorized.
  3. Wait for a reply e-mail from GreenPrint reporting the status of your print job(s) in the queue.
  4. Go to any GreenPrint printer and release your print job(s) as usual. *There will be a several second delay from the time you select print and the time the job actually begins printing. 

Supported Formats for Printing With GreenPrint Mobile

GreenPrint Mobile is capable of printing the following formatted documents (Windows or Mac):

  • Microsoft® Word (.doc and .docx)
  • Microsoft® Excel (.xls, .xlsx, .xlt)
  • Microsoft® PowerPoint (.ppt, pptx and .pptm)

Registering an E-mail Address

At the beginning of every term Dartmouth preloads all student and faculty Dartmouth e-mail addresses into the GreenPrint Mobile registry. However, if you would like to send a print job from a different e-mail address you will need to first register that e-mail address to your GreenPrint account. Registration is quick and simple, and there is no limit to the number of e-mail addresses you can register to your account. To register:

  1. Attach the document(s) you wish to print to an e-mail in the e-mail account you wish to register.
  2. Send that e-mail to GreenPrint@dartmouth.edu.
  3. Wait to receive the E-mail Address Registration e-mail from GreenPrint Mobile.
  4. Click the link provided in the e-mail.
  5. Enter your Dartmouth NetID and password, and click submit.
  6. A registration confirmation message will appear when registration is complete.

Once you follow these steps you can send print jobs using this e-mail address to your personal print queue whenever you wish.
