Ability to print screens of the builders choice.


   I would like to submit a request to add a print feature. I run a company that requires driver to leave a "pick-up ticket" and a "drop-off ticket". It would be nice to be able have a field called "Print" and you could drag it over to a screen and it would only print that particular screen. It wouldn't have to be fancy just an ability to be able to print something simple like a receipt you get from a store purchase. This would allow people to create screens with mirrored information from previous screens and only print the information needed mid-workflow in the app. For us, that screens would be named, "Pick-up Ticket" and another named, "Drop-off Ticket" and the driver could easily print the information needed to leave behind at each location. I believe this would greatly widen the scope in which GoCanvas could be used by other companies with similar practices. I really appreciate any consideration you might have in taking up this request. I could use this app builder for so much more if this feature could be added. Thanks!


I wouldn't be able to create two different apps for pick-up and drop-off because of invoicing and we want to keep all the information on one ticket.

I cant use the designer and standard PDF's as a work around because we actually have more than two reasons to print mid-workflow. I just gave two in the feature request. 

Our drivers print using thermal printers with a 4" paper ribbon, so to print a PDF, on this paper, the fonts would come out to small and hard to read.
