Configuring the Personal Printing app

The Personal Printing app is available for iOS devices and for Android devices (up to version 5.0). The users can download the app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Alternatively, you can use an EMM/MDM solution to distribute the app onto the users’ devices.

After they have downloaded the app, the users have to use the Personal Printing app to open the configuration file (see illus.), which they received by email. That will start the configuration.
