List printing

How can we print a list so that all the columns can fit on a page?
Printing from the arena portal page (via top right icon) prints the page in 1:1 ratio spreading the columns across multiple pages (unusable). Exporting to excel includes so much unneeded data (for us) that it is too cumbersome to use practically every time the list changes. 

Staff have become comfortable using basic list but often need to print the info. Creating a separate report in report builder is also impractical since often we only need to print the job for a brief period (e.g. event tag, or list of members in a group, etc.). 

Any suggestions appreciated. 


No Data
  • Given the countless ways data can come out, I don't think there is a direct solution.  Yes, exporting to Excel includes a lot of extra information, but deleting unneeded columns isn't that huge of a deal usually.  If you are wanting a consistent set of data displayed and you're just using the list to select who you want that same data for, you can create a report that receives the person IDs only and then provides that same consistent set of data about them (name, email, cell, address, attendance this year, etc.).

    Going from any list with fully customized data to a printed page that looks "normal"...not so easy.  But others may have additional thoughts and tips that I would also love to hear. We have just gotten more accustomed to being paperless for most things or exporting to Excel and cleaning up.
