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.

Thanks everyone - to expand on Emma's reply below on the various types of "printing" that were identified in our recent survey, and the report capabilities already available in CDS, we are beginning engineering work for Canvas App export to PDF and are planning to release this functionality in February 2021. We understand this feature is hotly anticipated and are excited to get this underway. As soon as we can make early preview or experimental features available we will and will continue to provide updates on this idea, and on our blog.

 

Thank you to all the members of our community that have voted, provided feedback and been patient as we work to get this work underway.

I agree with people requesting this. @Milindav asked for examples and I tried to create a simple packing list program for some shipments and without the ability to print a paper form to attach to a box I had to scrap PowerApps as a possible solutions. While we would like to pretend the world is paperless sometimes, like this, there is a need for paper to be used.

Essential feature for us too! The only thing keeping me from migrating from InfoPath to powerapps

A print feature would be great for printing work order tickets like on a thermal printer...

Microsoft needs a cloud print feature like Google has and then it can create an API for PowerApps to utilize.

Please include mailmerge capability.

Yes, please add printing to merge data into Word and Excel.  As Flow already has something similar for generating email notifications from a template using PowerApps data, this should be the logical next step,

Over a year later, still no movement?

 

Printing is sooo necessary.

@Shais, I agree whole heartedly. I have had more programs I wanted to do in PowerApps and couldn't because I can't get a form than those I have buillt. It's almost laughable that I can interface with the physical world using using a Flic button or Arduino but I can't get a piece of paper or thermal label.

@MarcRohde The world is just not there yet where a hard copy of something digital is not needed. It's actually quite comical.
