StratoQ allows for secure release of print jobs at the MFD. Instead of printing a job and having it come out on the device right away, the user prints a job to a virtual queue where it is stored until the user logs in at the device and releases it.
Even if MFPs are not connected to the same local network, any MFP connected to the same StratoQ.com customer account will be able to release print jobs for that customer's users.
Google vs. StratoQ
Customer admins have the option of using either a virtual Google Cloud Print queue or having StratoQ store the jobs in a secure Amazon S3 bucket. This decision typically depends on whether or not Google login is enabled for a customer account, and if Chromebooks are used for job submission.
First, log into StratoQ.com as an administrator and go to the "My Prints" section. Here you can create either a virtual Google Cloud Print printer or designate StratoQ to store the print jobs. Give the queue a unique name and hit create. We will automatically create the queue (either a Google Cloud Printer under your G Suite account or an internal queue).
NOTE: the user that you are logged in as will also be the user that owns the Google printer. Because of this, you should use a generic service account rather than your personal G Suite user.
To share the printer out with users from your domain just click the "View on Google Cloud Print" button and Google's admin page will open in a new tab.
To view all the jobs that are currently on hold for a printer, use the "Show Queue" feature.
If you have selected StratoQ as the queue type, there is no need to share anything out. Any user that belongs to your customer account will automatically store their print jobs at STratoQ.com. Our mobile and desktop apps know which destination to send jobs to based off the queue type.
Submitting a job
Users can submit a print job to the StratoQ My Prints queue via one of our mobile or desktop apps. If the queue is managed by StratoQ users can also login to StratoQ.com and submit jobs via upload.
If the queue is a Google Cloud Print printer the users would submit jobs any way they typically would to a GCP-enabled device. This functionality is built into Chromebooks, Android devices, and in any native Google app or in Chrome.
The My Prints function can be enabled or disabled for a customer, just ask your reseller if you'd like it removed. The function is available to users in all modes.
