Did you know that you can “print” to the Xerox copiers without actually printing anything until you walk up to the machine? This incredibly useful feature is great in situations where you are printing confidential documents or are in an office where many people are printing to the same copier regularly and there is a risk that your document might get lost in a pile of someone else’s.
This feature is called FollowMe printing and it works on all copiers on campus.
IMPORTANT: ITS recommends to always print using the FollowMe option to ensure all printing done on campus is secure and confidential.
There are some key points to keep in mind when using the FollowMe option:
All our BU computers should already have the FollowMe printers installed. If you cannot find them when printing your document, please, contact the ITS Helpdesk.
If you are using a personal device to print, refer to our BYOD Printing tutorial page to learn how to use FollowMe printing on a non-BU device.
