Printing

The printing feature is not working for me for mobile power apps. Is there a work around to allow for mobile printing? Any solution would be super helpful.

Two things.  First, I assume the regular Print doesn't work because it prints through the operating system and won't know whether you have HP print or how to access it if you do.  For the other there are ways to create a PDF using Power Automate from the information on a Power app and then store it in OneDrive or SharePoint.  From there your HP print would be able to print it.  Here's a good video on creating a PDF from Power apps using Power Automate.

Normally mobile devices don't have access to a printer unless they've loaded some extra software to allow them to do screen prints.  Do you have something like that?  Otherwise, what printer do you think the mobile will be able to print to?

All mobile iPhones should easily be able to access printers through the HP smart app. Which is how I am able to easily print pdf forms from my phone. But the Print() function does not have any functionality via the iPhone.

 

Is there any way to simply make a page of your app viewable as a pdf form? Because apply has a user interface already set up for pdfs that allow for sharing, downloading, and printing of PDF’s with ease. So utilizing this feature could be the best option.

 

Thanks,
