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

Hi 

 

Can you please give us some update?

 

Why is this feature not listed in the lists that are planned to release from October 2020 through March 2021?

 

Thanks.

Hi Folks - we are getting extremely close! The team is working on the release plan and will share more details this week. We'll have code for the first increment of canvas printing getting checked in in the next couple weeks, which may mean it reaches all regions in early March I'm sorry to say (just due to how our roll outs work) but we'll know more later this week and will share, along with our plans for future updates. Appreciate everyone's patience and enthusiasm.

 

Thanks,

Clay.

Unfortunately early access will still likely be late Feb/Early March - but we will know more end of this week. Emma from the team is going to share the plan along with the phases we are following this week - it will help give people a sense of what they will get when.

Thanks for the update.  Please make sure any PDF rendered in the app on the mobile devices can be pushed easily to Azure Blob Storage and\or SharePoint.
