Document generation with PowerApps

Hello, 

I want to create a ordering app. The app will allow the user to add items to an order, and then proceed to checkout. Once the user has agreed to the total, a document will be generated with the items they ordered and a summary of the order and their digital signature will be added.  

Is this possible?

Possible, but it takes some work.

One way: You can use Flow to take values from the customer order and build up an HTML text string. You can then save that to SharePoint, OneDrive, Azure Blob Storage or add to an email.

There is now a Flow action for populating a Word file, but in brief testing it doesn't handle repeating data (like a variable number of items in an order).

I was thinking maybe a connector of some sort could help with that part. I could always just build an email out of it as the receipt and then have the sales person manually enter the price and have the customer sign it using a third party app. Thanks for your insight!
