Over the course of this year requests for a PRINT WIDGET in the ArcGIS Online off-the-shelf apps have been reaching my desk more and more. This goes beyond the PRINT WIDGET offered in Web AppBuilder which is great if you have planned ahead, and for example you know that you are creating an app for a customer who knows they will need the capability to print a quick map to take to the field that day, etc. It actually comes up more commonly where an app has already been created such as a Story Map to share with the public, or for presentation to a Manager, and the first thing the manager wants to do is PRINT it so they can share the idea with other managers or staff persons at a meeting.
We are currently using the out-of-the box apps and widgets, not downloading and customizing AGOL apps, and are NOT re-hosting customized apps in our own web-enabled environment. (We want to avoid some of the issues that would come with managing new versions, and updating customized web apps that have been downloaded and re-hosted.) In the case described above, the PRINT WIDGET in Web AppBuilder does NOT meet the need! It would be most beneficial for the broad majority of staff-users within our organization to have a PRINT WIDGET included in the off-the-shelf AGOL web apps (i.e. Story Maps, Crowd source, Map Viewer, etc).
Thank you for your consideration of this idea!
