I have a input form created in SharePoint 2010 and Nintex Workflow enabled. I am building a workflow to send notifications to specific users based on certain criteria.
I am wondering if it is also possible to send the list or specific items on the list to be printed on a network printer?
This requirement sounds like a challenge / fun.
My approach would be to generate some sort of a document like a word document with your list items inside, output this to a document library and then either develop a web service which allows printing or find out if you have any existing printers which support printing via a web service so you can just effectively send the document/s to the printer using the "Call a web service" method inside Nintex Workflow.
There may be other ways to achieve this.
I have the exact same situation. I want something to print to a network printer 'on submit'.
Would love to see some brilliant minds figure this out!
You can execute powershell script with the help of workflow action:
Now only thing will be to figure out script for sending the current document to printer with powershell.
