    After you select a document and click Upload & Complete », the file uploads to the server.

  6. Once the document upload is complete, the user is returned to the front Web Print page. The table displays the status of the user’s job. The status changes to indicate the progress of the job from rendering to printing, and job details such as cost and number of pages are populated when known. The user can stay at this page to track the status of the job, or navigate away / close their browser - the job is not affected.

    At this stage the PaperCut Application Server accepts the uploaded document and sends it to the Web Print server. The Web Print server renders the document into a print queue by automating the process of opening the application (e.g. Adobe Reader) and printing to the target printer.
