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 have found many work arounds to the lack of print functionality but there are some need that really makes powerapps a useless tool without it.  The inability to print a receipt or a barcode label.  Does anyone have this capability or suggestion

@leyburn19 - I had to add separate steps for it.  For printing a label, I created a screen for it to be displayed in the right proportions that it would need to be printed... and from there, the user can take a snapshot and then paste it in the Word Template or Label Printer and just expand it to fit the bounds of what the template is (that's why making the label in the same proportions is important).  

 

that was my path since PA cannot just print a given screen on a printer one would select... 😕

I have a visitor app in standby, because the idea is to print the visitor badge in a thermal printer located beside the iPad.

 

Still waiting for it..............

@CWesener Thank for the reply. There is a lot of anxious  people (including myself) to see what´s the solution. Please give us a taste of how the printing will work!

Please as you said that printing will be available as a PDF export, allow us to determine the paper size of the PDF. we desperatly need to print on Dymo Labelwriter 450 our inventory Barcode, as well as shipping label and many other purposes.

 

Thanks
