RepairShopr uses Google Cloud Print to make it easier to send print jobs to your local printers. By setting up Cloud Print you can automate printing tasks, as well as have access to quick print buttons on your various documents.
Since this is browser-based, it works on both Mac and PC, as long as you're running Google Chrome.
The steps below are broken into 3 sections: Configuring your printers locally, syncing your printers to your Chrome account, and syncing your Chrome account to RepairShopr.
Optional: Google allows you to run a Windows service to catch the print jobs instead of using your Chrome browser - if you are interested, you can try this once you're set up after following the steps below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/cloudprintservice
**If after this set up you have issues with Cloud Print, refer to this article.
