Have you ever wanted to create a PDF from Power Apps? We’ve often had requests from customers who want to create a PDF, an invoice or permit for instance, inside of Power Apps. The goal with this is to take information from a data set and push it into a PDF that can be shared with others, possibly by email or by sharing a link that can be downloaded.
There are a few ways you can do this. One way is with third-party tools that can integrate Power Apps data into an existing PDF or Word document. In this video I’ll show you how to create PDF documents from Power Apps using Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow) and how to debug when things go wrong.
In this video, the focus is on creating a PDF from scratch. The process will begin with a PDF created from an HTML doc inside of Power Apps then converted using Power Automate and then created again as a PDF. This is an easy way to do this on your own, without having to spend money on a third-party tool. Watch my demo below for a step by step guide on how to do this.
