When you send a document to print, it will go to your list of 'pending print jobs'.

You then have up to 72 hours to collect it. After 72 hours the document will be deleted from your list. Printing a document automatically removes it from your list.

To check your list of pending print jobs, log in at https://myprinting.gla.ac.uk and select Documents.

To remove a document you no longer want to print, select the document and click the Delete button at the top of the list.
