Export charts or input data to pdf

Hi,

 

I'm developing an app and i need a user to complete a form (using input text ) and regarding this data create a chart. 

How i did understand it is better to use Collection for creating a charts but i still cannot find if i can export them.

Could you please let me know if :

  • Is it possible to user to export any of charts (pie/line/column) to pdf or any other format ? (e.g. export programme or cashflow chart) 
  • Is it possible to user to export input or output text to pdf,csv or any other format? (e.g. export estimating data)

Thanks 

 

Polina

Re: Export charts or input data to pdf

You could transform the collection in PowerApps that's being used for the chart to a jsonstring using concat and substitute and then pass that string to flow. In flow you could then parse the jsonstring and iterate over the collection and send it to a power bi dataset for example. There you could create any chart you'd like.

Hi @PolinaLaz,

 

I'm afraid that this cannot be achieved so far in powerapps. I found an idea in PowerApps Idea Forum asking about the same feature, please vote:
