How do I Print a Big LeanKit Board?

Many of our customers have very big Kanban boards. LeanKit’s ability to scale to workflows with dozens of people and hundreds of lanes on a single board is what made many of our customers choose us versus other products. Those big boards work great when viewed live on PC monitors, tablets, or big wall screens. But they can be a problem for executive reporting. For some reason, senior managers just love to get print-outs. How can you do that for a board that’s four screens wide and eight screens tall?

We’ve found a browser plug-ins that help a lot. It allow you to save the full screen or a portion as an image. And it even allows you to highlight, circle, use pointer arrows, add text notes, etc. in order to bring attention to key things on the page. In fact, if you’re sending us information about a problem with your account, it’s a really great way to make sure we fully understand what you are seeing!

We can’t guarantee their performance, of course, but they’ve worked well for us so far.
