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

I think you need the excel export in canvas apps. I often use canvas apps for data cleansing. If the user needs to export the data that they are working on for another process it involves writing the data to a database and using automate to export to excel in their onedrive as CSV files

No excel export...? How about import from excel like model driven app

Its the 28th of July now, still no print function... Whats going on? was supposed to be in public preview this month but thats clearly changed... i work with a lot of older people that need things to work as simply as possible, and having a print function would make my life so much easier in that regards.

 

I know there other solutions to printing provided by the community, but it would be nice if there was something already built in to power apps for printing

Any update on the print function? Let us know when this will be released?

This has been updated from "public preview Jul 2020" in wave 1 to "public preview to be announced".

What does that mean? is it still in scope? can we expect an imminent deployment?

@emmac, do you know the ETA of the Public Preview?

 

We have an app in our pipeline that's going to need this.  Any info would be appreciated!
