Esri Maps for SharePoint provides several printing options for your Viewer application. For simple, low-resolution printing, you can choose from the built-in layouts: Basic and With Map Elements. Printing this way does not require referencing a service. For higher quality printing with the ArcGIS for Server 10.1 Print Service, see the Advanced map printing section below for more details.
The simple printing option refers to the self-contained print functionality in Esri Maps for SharePoint.

If you require high quality printing or additional layout options, you should use the ArcGIS 10.1 Print Service. If this is the case, skip this section and refer to the Advanced map printing section below.
The print layouts available with the simple print option are as follows:
The Basic print layout includes the following:

Esri Maps for SharePoint provides a custom, high-quality print tool for the ArcGIS Map Web Part that uses the ArcGIS for Server 10.1 Print Service.

The Add Tool dialog box appears.
You must specify the entire url to the Print Service, for example, http://<server_name>/arcgis/rest/services/Utilities/PrintingTools/GPServer.
