Printing

As this is designed for ENTERPRISE, printing from the within the APPS will make PowerApps superior to Excel and even ERP / SAP system.
If ONENOTE can be accomplished (for printing) after our request, why not PowerApps.

Hi everyone,

The first release includes a new Print function in canvas apps, to be used on any screen, and when used will take the contents of the screen and open it in the browser’s default print dialog to enable selecting the available printer, or saving to PDF options. We are also working on screen templates that will help you to author this content. Initially we will only support this on the web, but it will be extended to support mobile devices. Things are trending well with the dev effort, with the roll out starting the end of February, with availability across all regions coming mid March.

The second phase of this work will be to introduce a function that enables saving a screen as a PDF in the app. This will allow compatibility to leverage Power Automate flows to do many of the events such as saving it somewhere, sending an email and other common actions. This is currently still in progress, and we can provide an update in the next few weeks.

Thanks, 
-Emma

thank you for that update.

I think its clear microsoft have no immediate plans for this, and that survey released was more to give the impression of them working on it.

As this is a much requested and rgently needed basic feature, is there any way to escalate the idea?

This Flow Community Blog post by Luise Freese may help until this feature is completed.

So many workarounds. BUT PowerApps Team, where is the real solution? Give us some updates on progress and most importantly WHEN will we see v1.0 of printing?

Hopefully, MS implement this impressive facility... Many organizations need this like food. 

Please add it ASAP. Also, Save Pen input in SharePoint list. I saw many youtube clip, but it was not correct and useful. They only talk about some part; not all steps should be taken. 

They said, a column in SP should be Plain text, but they do not say how to integrate Plain Text with pen input or image...Much appreciate for any helo Re pen input.

Bets Regards,

I'll add in my voice and say this is incredibly important. As much as we would love to be a paperless office, printing off important SharePoint forms is required in many office enviroments. We just finished developing a very large site for a client, and during training they brought up printing, I'm not sure that "Microsoft is working on it" will be an effective answer. 

 

Please escalate this, or at a minimum provide an update to when we should expect this basic feature.
