Start printing

Having installed Printix Client, you can now print to the Printix managed printers and check out the many features that will make office printing convenient, secure and easy to manage. But first, let us check out how you can print as usual.

  • Open the item you want to print. Select Print on the File menu.
  • You will notice that nothing has changed, except for the three letters (ASD, BNM, …) at the end of the printer name, which indicates that these printers are now managed by Printix. And apart from the Printix Anywhere printer, you have the exact same printers available to you as you did before the installation.
  • Identify a Printix printer, select it, select Print.

Optional customizations

  • Subscription email receiver
    During the 1-month trial email reminders are sent when 15, 5 and 1 day remains. These emails are by default sent to the email address of the user (you) who signed up for Printix Cloud Print Management Service. On the Subscription page you can change who receives subscription emails and future invoices. You can Add credit card at any time to suppress the email reminders. You will still get the remaining time of your 1-month trial for free.
  • Email message signature
    On the Settings page you may want to change the Signature, to include contact details for your Help Desk. By default this is populated with the name and email address of the user (you) who signed up for Printix Cloud Print Management Service.
