Add a Canon Multifunction (MFD) Printer/Copier

Staff network copiers (MFD Printers) are for use by College employees on campus.  Use over the Internet, including through VPN, by students or on personally-owned devices are not supported.  Network printers and the print functions of network copiers are not pre-installed when you log in to a new computer.  Each person wanting to print to a network copier/printer need to install it for their account on each computer they use.  Non-privileged accounts, such as guest, work study, and service accounts may not have permission to install or use network copiers/printers.  If installation is needed for such, a regular employee account may have to authenticate the install or the non-privileged account may have to be granted temporary permission to make changes to the system (if this is the case, create a Parature ticket or contact the IT Department).  The Canon copiers are part of the print accounting system and you print to a central queue (TCC-PRINTING).  The central queue lets you go to any of the copiers that are part of the print accounting system and release your print jobs.

To easily and quickly install a network copier or printer, open a Windows Explorer (or Finder window on a MAC) window for the list of shared network printers.  To do this, select "Run" from the Start menu.  If the Run... feature isn't shown, use the Run hot-key of "Windows+R" (the Windows key is between the Alt and Ctrl keys).  Hold down the Windows key, tap the R key and release the Windows key.
