Print2fax

  • Fax documents directly from any PC program.

  • Quick faxing with a built in contact book.

  • Sync contacts with Microsoft Outlook.


Print2fax is a Windows driver that allows you send faxes directly from just about any program that supports a printing function. The driver faxes the currently opened document in the program you have used. If delivered to a virtual fax machine (such as a Teleconsole client), it will be converted  to a PDF format.  



Installing and Removing the App


Follow these steps to intall or remove Print2fax:


  • To install Print2Fax click Apps on the Telebroad's home page top menu.



    If you are using a phone or a tablet access Apps from the side menu.



  • Scroll down and find Print2Fax in the "Apps and integrations for your daily needs" section.



    Click it and a pop up window will open, where you can click Get It Now to download the Print2fax installer.



    You can also download the installer directly from this link:

    http://www.telebroad.com/downloads/print2fax.exe

  • Depending on your web browser, you may be asked if you want to save the installer file or it will be automatically downloaded to your Downloads folder or the any folder that was designated in your browser's settings.

    When the download is finished, you can start installing it immediately by clicking or choosing Open. You can also have it Shown it in the folder it was downloaded to, where you can double click the file called print2fax.exe to start the installation.

    Depending on your version of Windows, you may see one or several notifications about the application trying to make changes to your device or that the publisher is not being recognized. These are normal. Just approve any such notification to proceed by clicking Allow.  With windows 10, Windows Defender's Smart Screen may open with such warnings. You need to click More info>Run anyways to continue the installation.


  • Follow the on screen instructions to complete the installation.



    Because this is a driver and not a program you will not see any shortcuts or any launch icons in the windows menu for it.

  • If you decide to uninstall the app, you will need to launch the Control Panel or Settings, depending on your Windows version.

    • On Windows 8.1 and earlier versions you need to access the Control Panel screen and select Programs>Remove a program installation.

      Scroll down to find the "Telebroad Print2fFax Printer" with publisher listed as "Telebroad", as it appears here.

      Select or checkmark it and click Uninstall/Change at the top of the programs list.

      Approve the request to uninstall the driver when prompted.



    • On Windows 10 version you need to access the Settings screen and select Apps.

      On the Apps & features screen scroll down to find "Telebroad Print2fFax Printer".

      Click it to reveal the related options and select Uninstall.


Setting Up


Select Print from any program that supports a print function. The print dialog window may vary with the program or your Windows version. You need to find and change the selected destination or printer to Telebroad Print2Fax. Here are two examples:


 



Now when you click Print, a window will show up asking you to set up your account by clicking on Settings. Enter your User Name, Password, Caller ID (for your fax line, not your phone line!),  and E-mail address.


You have the option of adding a cover page to the fax by checkmarking the Add Cover Page field and entering the sender's (your) Full Name and Company name.


If you have a Microsoft Outlook installed you can toggle the Provider field to use Outlook contacts data rather than the app's own internal contacts database.


Below the Provider there are also two clickable buttons:


  • The first lets you keep using the internal database but copy your Outlook contacts into it.

  • The second lets you can sync your outlook database with Outlook by coping contacts from the internal database into it.



You only need to enter your settings once. They will be saved for all other programs on your computer.



Usage


Once you are done with the settings, simply enter the recipient's full fax number in the provided field. The Send button, previously grayed out, will become available. Press it to fax the current document from the program you are using. It's that easy!


A message will be displayed, informing you the fax has been successfully submitted for faxing by the Telebroad server. 



You will then be notified by email once it has been sent (usually within a few seconds), including the sending time and a handy PDF copy of fax itself. 


Cover Page


If you checkmarked "Add Cover Page" in settings, the sending screen will include three additional fields. Enter the recipient's Name and Company Name, and write the cover page note.


 



Managing Contacts


If the number does not exist in your contacts, you can choose to click Add to Contacts. Enter the contact's Name and any additional phone numbers for him (if any. Whenever you enter a number a new phone number field will be added below it, for you to use or not.) and click Save. You can click the Delete button to delete contacts after you created them (see below).



Once you have contacts saved you can find them either by typing their name or by clicking the Rolodex icon to show a list of you contacts.



Selecting an existing contact, gives you the choice to Open Contact. The contact's window will open allowing you to edit his details or delete him completely. You will be prompted to approve the deletion first.


Lastly, you can click the Watch icon to display a history of the contacts you sent faxes to.
