As we are supporting different types of devices with different file types it makes sense when sending files to members of staff that it is in a format that their device will be able to open. Most word processing packages allow you to save as a “.pdf” file and this is the standard file type we would encourage you to use when sending to a member of staff or when using the web printing system.
Just remember to save the file first and then save a copy as a “.pdf” so that you can still edit the file on your chosen word processing package.
When you need to print a document you can do this using our Web Print system. There is a link on the portal site (it is a printer icon). This will ask you to login — use the same username and password that you have for the school computer system. You will see a summary screen. On the left hand side there is an option for “Web Print”. Select this and then choose “Submit a Job”. Follow the wizard by choosing your printer and number of copies then upload the file.
