Pharos Mobile Print Using a Laptop or Desktop Computer

  1. Navigate to the Pharos Print Center web page. You may want to bookmark the page for future reference.
  2. When prompted, log in using your BYU-Idaho username and password.
  3. Click the "Upload" button.
  4. Select your document, then use "Print Options" to change document characteristics:
    1. Color (choice of black-and-white or color)
    2. Sides (double-sided or single-sided)
    3. Pages per side (1 or 2)
    4. Copies (number of copies)
  5. Log in to one of the many print release stations on campus to print your document. See below for more information on how to use the print release stations.
NOTE: The dollar amount shown in the bottom left of the page (usually a negative number) is not your available funds. It's a record of how much you've spent through your I-card. The Pharos Print Center website cannot show how much money is available on your account, but the print release stations on campus will.

Pharos Mobile Print Using an iOS or Android Mobile Device

  1. Open your device's app store.
  2. Search for and install "Pharos Print."
    NOTE: The Pharos Print mobile app employs notifications. Users should expect to start receiving a number of notifications, unless you instruct your mobile device otherwise.
  3. Close the App Store.
  4. Open the Pharos Print app.
  5. When prompted, enter "webprint.byui.edu" as the "Server" and "443" as the "Port."
  6. Sign in using your BYU-Idaho username and password.
  7. Submit a document for printing.
NOTE: Mobile Print does not send documents to a specific printer. Rather, it uploads the print job to the printing system server. Then it can be printed from any print release station on campus. 
  1. On an Apple device, "Submit," "Share," or "Copy" a document to Pharos Print. 
  2. On an Android device, while in Pharos Print, tap "Upload" and select the document you wish to print. 
NOTE: On Apple and Android devices, it is very easy to accidentally submit a document that is not compatible with the Mobile Print system. In those cases, the document will not be submitted, or will not be found by the app. Make sure that your document is compatible with the Mobile Print system before you send it!
 
NOTE: If you are submitting a document using Mobile Print and notice that “processing” is no longer displayed next to the print job, but instead shows a dollar amount, the print job is ready for releasing at a print release station.
  1. Select the settings you desire.
NOTE:  The "Default" settings are "mono" (black-and-white) and two-sided (prints on both sides of the paper). You must change your choices manually before releasing your print job if you desire different settings.
  1. Color (choice of black-and-white or color)
  2. Sides (double-sided or single-sided)
  3. Pages per side (1 or 2)
  4. Copies (however many copies you desire)
NOTE: Mobile Print does not provide any option to print only certain pages out of a multiple-page document. You need to be certain of the length of your document before printing in order to avoid printing more pages than desired.
  1. Log in to one of the many print release stations on campus to print your document.

Using a Print Release Station

  1. After sending your document to the printing server, sign in to the print release station using your BYU-Idaho username.
  2. Swipe your I-Card. This will identify the account you wish to use to pay for the print job.
  3. Select and print your documents.
