Disable telemetry for deprecated extension for GDPR
Latest commit a7c94f9 Mar 17, 2018



NOTICE - We have deprecated this extension from the Visual Studio Marketplace. The extension will continue to serve as an open source solution and sample extension on GitHub.


This extension adds a print option to the backlog which allows you to print the cards for use on a physical scrum board. Print cards have QR Codes used to bridge the physical and digital boards.


Having a physical scrum board can allow those inside and outside the team a quick view location for the status of the work and the act of moving physical cards has a more real and tangible feel than just clicking on a screen.


  1. Clone this repo
  2. Browse to the folder of the extension
  3. Publish the contents of the extension to a local or cloud web server
  4. The root of the extension should be at the root of the web server, for example: https://myserver/images/fabrikam-logo.png
  5. Update the extension manifest file (extension.json). To do this, update the namespace field to a globally unique value. For example: johnsmith.samples.foldermanagement. Also, update the baseUri field to be the fully qualified URL to the root of your web server, for example: https://myserver
  6. Install the extension into your Visual Studio Team Services account (see https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/integrate/extensions/publish/overview)


A Visual Studio Team Services project and some work items.
