directprint.io includes the ability for admins to choose to deploy printers based on device, user or a combination of both. This opens up additional configuration options for admins.
Using the existing directprint.io print policy capability, it’s also possible for admins to create different print policies (mono, toner save, duplex defaults, max page count) for student and teacher bodies within each example.
This combination of deployment options and print policy enforcement provides a powerful toolkit for admins to improve reliability and control over printing within their organizations.
Many more printers supported: directprint.io introduces RAW port printing, also known as port 9100 printing. This feature greatly increases the number of printers supported by directprint.io.
As RAW Printing has been around since the dawn of network printing, introducing support for this protocol means that older printer models can be used with your new Chromebook fleet. Before you consign that old printer to the recycling, check to see whether it supports RAW printing.
RAW printing protocol will be autodetected by the directprint.io setup wizard, or can be directly specified in the printer setup by specifying the printer as socket://<IP or host of printer>:9100
