To use the C&CZ printers the loginname must be present in a budgetgroup for the specific group of printers. Next to that, the budget must be sufficient to print at least 1 page. The budget is automatically being lowered by the costs of print jobs. On the Do It Yourself website one can choose the default budget to print from. There one can also view the current amounts of all budgets that can be used and view a summary of the last twenty print jobs.
Students automatically get a private budgetgroup for the laserprinters. The name of this budgetgroup is the same as the loginname. Employees normally are automatically member of a budgetgroup with the name of their department.
To start a new budgetgroup, one has to stop by C&CZ system administration.
Putting money on an existing budget group can be done in a few ways:
- for groups with a budget number, by sending mail to mentioning the amount, the budget number and the budget group.
- for individuals with "pinpas" or "chipknip" at the Faculty Library on the ground floor of the Huygens-building, mentioning the loginname (and budget group if one has more than one). Putting money on your "chipknip" can be done in the central lobby of the Huygens building.
- if necessary with cash at C&CZ system administration.
