Highlights of List Print
Print your SharePoint List, not your entire web browser.
List Print is a SharePoint feature that adds a “Print List” command to the Actions menu of every SharePoint List — when activated, it opens a new window with the contents of the current list presented in one of several space saving, easy to read templates.
Instead of using the clumsy standard browser Print command (which includes the entire contents of the current window), List Print provides you with a custom display that displays your List, not your web browser. From the List Print window, users can change the template and list view on the fly, and either print the results, or export them to an Excel spreadsheet. Unlike the Export to Excel available out-of-the-box with SharePoint that exports data as text, List Print exports with formatting so dates are exported as dates. This is a huge time-saver!
List Print is fast, lightweight, and built into the list ribbon (or Actions menu) of every SharePoint List — you won’t remember how you lived without it.

Before using List Print
After installing the List Print on your SharePoint farm, you will need to activate the Bamboo List Print Site Collection feature before you can use it on any site of the collection.
As part of the installation process, you may have automatically deployed List Print to one or more web applications on your farm, but it is not possible to automatically activate a feature on individual Site Collections in the web application (check this).
For List Print, there is just one Site Collection feature to activate at the Site Collection level. There are no Site Features.
Do I need to activate this feature? If you do not activate this feature, you will not see the Print List option on the List Ribbon (or the Actions… menu if using WSSv3/MOSS) on any list or library in sites of the site collection.
Access List Print to print SharePoint lists
The List Print feature is activated or deactivated as a site collection feature. See Activating a Bamboo Site Collection Feature for more information on how to activate it.
Following activation, List Print is available from the SharePoint list to all users with permission to view that list.
