Who can use the devices?

The devices are free to be used by any student of University of Madeira (UMa), as well as by anyone else interested in the use of our system: former students, lecturers, university personnel or even those not involved in the academic community.

Where are the devices?

What are the working hours?

Is it possible to print using Google Cloud Print? If yes, how?

Yes! One of the great advantages of Google Cloud Print (GCP) is that you can print directly from your web browser (as long as it is Google Chrome), print from any device, including smartphones. You can choose the following print queues to submit your work:

You should add the queues for your favorite print to your favorite Google account, and it's done! On your first impression you'll need to associate your Google account with the platform. To do so, after sending your work through GCP, you will receive a link in your Google address where you will have to click and start your session normally on the platform. Using magic behind the scenes, as well as getting your work into the print queue, it's already available on You Print printers and your email has already been associated with your platform account.

When I send the document, does it immediately print?

No. When you load the document on the You Print platform in the "Web Print" menu, the user gives a print order that is executed only when the printer releases the job in person within 72 hours, for printing in one of the equipment of the University.

How can I print the exam sheets?

The file of the exam sheets(Lined/Checkered) of the University of Madeira is stored in, inside the folder You Print, where you can also find other useful files for your subjects. Just print the document by loading the file on the You Print platform.

What are the available services?

Using our devices, you can print, digitalise and make a photocopy of your documents in a maximum format of A3. Available both B&W and color prints.

What is a print queue?

Rather than being a queue of people who are called to pick up the documents, it is a queue in which the documents are called by the people, in this case, you. Naturally, the documents may pass in front of other documents that are also waiting.

What does each print queue mean?

Each print queue is defined by its size (A3 or A4), by its type (only front or front and back) and by its color (black or color). If you want to print two-sided, you need to be careful that the orientation comes out correctly. If the orientation of your document is horizontal, use the "Flyers" queue. If it is vertical, use the remaining print queues.

How can I order a print?

Simply choose "want to print" option in the top of the You Print page, enter your access credentials and choose the "Web Printing" tab. After submission, the document is available at any Campus printer to be released, simply enter your data or submit your University card.

What file formats can be printed?

To avoid the problem of misconfiguration of documents, the only format available for printing is PDF.

I have a document with pages both in color and in B&W. Where should I print?

The printing software can recognize the B&W pages present in a document with colored pages. This means that no matter if you want to print in B&W or in color, you’ll never pay the price of a color print on B&W pages.

Is it possible to print my files from home?

Yes, you can order a print from any place by uploading your documents to the You Print online platform. The job is only printed when you go to one of the University equipment to free the document for printing. Do not forget that you have 72 hours to free the document from the moment you sent it to print.

For how long is my work stored in the system?

The files await for the print order, in a queue, during 72 hours. After that time they are automatically deleted and you will have to reupload them to the system.

How do I make a print, from a PDF file, with multiple pages on the single sheet?

How can I add credit to my account?

You can add credit to your account in any service point of your Students' Union - in any Gaudeamus or at the Students’ Help Desk.

How can I associate the student card with my account?

Once you have received the access credentials for your account, it’s enough to slide the student card of UMa through the reader of any of our printers and insert your data to associate it with the card.

I don’t have the card. What do I do?

You can access your account inserting the credentials on the screen of the multifunction printer.

I have a document with pages both in color and in B&W. How much do I pay?

If you want to print the document in black, you can choose any multifunction available.If it is a color document, you should go to the color multifunction.If you make the mistake of printing the color document, you will have the discounted value as if it were a monochrome (black) print. The system does not allow refunds because of user errors.

Is it possible to get an invoice with the amount charged to my account?

Yes, invoices are issued for each charging done in Gaudeamus, at the Students’ Help Desk and at Naturalmente Português shop. If you want it to have your name and fiscal number on the invoice, you should tell the shop assistant before making the payment. If you had used a coupon, after inserting it on the platform head to the service point and ask for an invoice.

I’m an Associate of AAUMa. How can I benefit from the discounts?

In the beginning of the month following your payment of the annual fee for the associate card (10€) you will start to receive, until the month of August 2018, 1€ a month, automatically deposited on your account, for you to use it any way you want (photocopies, digitalisation, prints). If you pay the fee in September 2017, you’ll receive 2€ in the month of October 2017, to get a total of 12€ until August 2018.

Does the money charged go to the card?

No. The card is only for the system to load your profile into the multifunction printer. Your balance is associated with your account, so if you lose your card, you will always have your balance safeguarded.

There was a problem during the printing. What should I do?

Don’t worry. The pages that didn’t get printed will be automatically counted and the respective amount of money will be paid back to your account.

I lost my card, now what?

In this case, the first thing you have to do is to go to any AAUMa service point to let us know about this situation so that we can withdraw access to the card to prevent someone from spending your balance. However, you can continue to use the printers by manually entering your access credentials, and later, when you receive it, you can associate your new University card (if you are a student, teacher or UMa employee) or another proximity sensor card ( if you do not include them in the previous categories).

Is it possible to cancel a document that is already waiting to be printed?

Yes, you just have to go "Jobs Pending Release" menu in your You Print account, and select "[cancel]" in the "Action" column. The print job will be canceled at no cost.

All that our You Print service has to offer, you can also get in the We Print, where the work is all ours. What’s more, we have additional services such as binding or plastification. Your office stationery can also be bought, at unbeatable prices, in Gaudeamus of the University Campus.
