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.

Printing would be a very useful option to have.

Agree. Printing and specifically barcode printing would be great.

Thank you for your feedback. Can you give us a couple of examples of the things you expect to be printed ? - do you foresee creating documents and printing them?

It's not so much creating documents as being able to print a screen full of information from PowerApps.

 

For example, the App has retrieved information about a particular product which is being displayed on the screen. It would be easier for the user if there was a print option accessible from within the App.

Google Cloud Print integration or similar would be fantastic!

Printing would be a great way to give a full package to our customers. They want to make a checklist they use every day to complete the audit. The results need to be printed and archived.

Printing is required in scenario's concerning

Legal matters, contracts, chain of evidence, when reports are required in a court case, Proof of Due Diligence. 

 

Digital signatures are not always accepted, a hand written signature is, therefore a printed document is required in a lot of cases.

 

Data leakage should be controlled by the Company Information Policies.

But the ability to print or the ability to export to Word or PDF is a must in a lot of cases.

Happy to hear this is under review! One of our use cases for something like this is to automatically print out order tickets at the production. Our order and warehouse management software will send out Emails - but doesn't have the ability to auto-print. So presently we've got a Google AppScript script that watches a Gmail inbox and when an Email comes in with a specific tag, it will either take the PDF attachment or the HTML Email and send it off to the appropriate printer via Google CloudPrint. It would be nice to bring all this into our Office 365 envrionment - or at least cut out the Google AppScript part.
