TestRail – Optimized Printing

TestRail supports the feature to print different reports those are related to test runs, suits and other sections. To print in an optimized way, user needs to adjust the print options in web browser. For example, Internet Explorer and Firefox disable background colors by default to save printing costs. But TestRail print reports are already optimized for this, so user can safely enable background colors. These settings can be changed from, from Page Setup in the web browser’s menu.
