Connecting your Appath account to Google Cloud Print will allow you to print your packing slips, shipping labels, etc. wherever you are. Google Cloud Print is a new concept that connects your printers to the web so that you can have them print for you, even if you are not physically there.
Setting this up shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. However, first you will need to make sure you have Google Chrome installed on your computer. This is the only browser that allows you to connect your printers to the web. Once the set up is completed, you can go back to using your regular browser.
Once you are signed in to your Appath account on Google Chrome, you will need to follow the below steps:
1. Go to Settings,
2. Go to Printer Settings,
3. Follow the link on the page:
4. The next page will ask you to sign in to the appropriate Google Account. Once you do that, simply Accept , so that Google and Appath can access your printers:
5. Now, you will need to add printers to Google Cloud Print. First, please make sure you are signed in with the right account (the one you used when setting up Google Cloud Print via Appath).
Adding printers can be done using the Settings section in Google Chrome. This can be found by clicking on the three horizontal lines in the top right corner of your browser:
6. Scroll to the bottom and go to Show Advanced Settings:
7. Go to Manage, under Google Cloud Print:
8. Next, all the printers that are connected to your computer will come up. You will also be able to choose which one(s) you wish to connect to your Google Cloud Print. Don’t forget to click on Add Printer(s), once you are finished.
9. If everything goes well, you should see the below screen:
Your printers will now come up in your Appath account, however you should clear your browser’s cache to make sure everything is properly updated.
10. The next step would be to go and set Default Printers for each document. This can be done via your Appath account: Printer Settings. You will notice that each can have a default printer, depending on your needs:
