When using the printers for the first time, students must perform a one-time card activation to tie their ID card to their printing account. To activate your card:
After this one-time activation, students simply need to touch their cards to the reader in order to log in. If you forget your card, you can still log in using the keyboard to enter your Drake credentials.
Note: Do not punch a hole in your ID card. It will no longer work, and you will have to pay for a replacement.
The printers are set to log out after 5 minutes of inactivity. If you are finished at the printer and want to log out before it times out, press the "Log out" button to the right of the touch screen twice.
