InstaPrinta 2.0: Now with full Integration in JIRA Agile

In a previous article, we have introduced the InstaPrinta by //SEIBERT/MEDIA and the functions of the JIRA plugin. Our JIRADev team has now released InstaPrinta 2.0 and we would like to dive a bit deeper into the actual features. InstaPrinta is a JIRA plugin for printing issues directly from JIRA and JIRA Agile on handy card format (i.e. DIN A6). Individual and various issues can be sent to the printer and saved as a PDF. In JIRA, issue view and issue search are extended by a menu item, that offers a choice to print or create a PDF.

Use cases

The InstaPrinta is great wherever handy note cards are used to process JIRA issues. It is especially useful in Teams that use Scrum or Kanban with an analogue task board. And these features can also be useful outside agile methods in daily work. For example, colleagues can be reminded of tasks with the note cards.
