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

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:
