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.

Really some better transparency when it comes to feature development would be nice.

 

I've been working on an app for my company that would combine what we currently use several programs to do, into one single app. Unfortunately I cant do anything more with it until a print function has been implemented, I cant even give my boss a timeline for when I'll be finished because I don't have any idea when printing will be enabled, and I don't really want to use a workaround if the print function is added later and works better than any workaround currently available. It would mean having to go back in and edit the code for everything that's tied to printing or pdf export and I really don't like having to do things twice...

 

Microsoft, what's going on? I love power apps because of its simplicity compared to actual programming languages but i feel like i could have learned one and built an executable app by now instead of waiting for a single feature to become available to make a web app that prints...

 

I know covid messed up a lot of plans for everyone, and there's always more going on behind the scenes than what we see, but we as your customer base could really use some more info at this point, please.

We have also developed a large app that will greatly streamline our processes. But we are missing the PDF function. Please give us an update when we can expect it?

Printing directly from PowerApps is crucial and it would be really appreciated if this is announced with detailed process document.

Thanks for letting us know @Ulisses.  I replied as well to that Twitter feed in hopes of pushing Microsoft to respond with an update.

Hi everyone - sorry for the lack of replies on this thread. We did start explorations on printing, specifically export to PDF but unfortunately were not able to make as much progress in the last semester as we would have liked. I'm discussing this with the team as we speak and will loop back on this thread to let you know what we will be able to act on.

 

I sincerely appreciate the feedback, and apologize again this one has dragged on.

 

Thanks,

Clay.
