Add ability to print and/or export a wiki page.
Provide the ability to print and/or export (Word, PDF, etc.) a wiki page(s) that is created under a Team's channel page.
This item is still on the backlog. I will continue to track this item and provide updates as soon as I get new updates.

please bring this feature. It is crucial in order to efficiently work with teams and have all information centralized!
we need to be able to print the wiki! Thanks
I agree with other people: the wiki is very hard to use without this "basic"(!) functionality. Please add the ability to export or print to pdf. Thank you.
It's very weird not being able to print the Wiki. Looking past the fact that it should not have been omitted as an option in the first place, please add it to the standard capabilities of Teams straight away.
It is hard to recommend products like this to colleagues if we find straight away that there are such gaping holes in the capabilities.
Updates please. If you are going to solicit votes, and then announce that this item is "working its way through the queue," you have a responsibility to update contributors here more than once every four or five months.
The wiki is very hard to use without this basic functionality. please add the ability to export or print to pdf.
Once again, OWA is a hodge podge of broken pieces. The users are asking for consistent functionality across all platforms for all apps!!! Can't image the large companies with huge implementations of Microsoft.

This is so basic that is seems silly in 2019 to ask for users to vote about "be able to print a wiki page".
This is a basic function and must be included asap.
How's it gong?
Add my vote to getting export/save/print for wiki pages. It's ridiculous that this isn't supported in a modern tool of this nature.

I too want this functionality.
That is crazy that this is not able to be printed. Why would that not be built into it initially.....how can I send it to someone that does not have access or so many other things.
For legal purposes, we really need to be able to print or export the entire version history of wiki pages.
As a workaround it would be great if we could at least select all content on a wiki page at once (and then paste it into Word). Could that be added sooner than an actual print or export feature?
4 months since last update from admin. Any news to this topic?
As a rider to my previous comment about the legal issues.
I am age 54, a Civil Engineer, and Head of Engineering, including R&D for my international company of 700 staff. I have worked as R&D manager in Broadcast, Telecom, Oil and Gas, Defence and Aerospace, and now aquaculture.
You are lucky that someone at my level spends the time to point this out.
Most managers will not see the issue if it never comes up, then they will wonder what hit them.
Most will not have the time (and neither do I really) to post in this type of forum.
****That is the only reason for the lack of votes.***
The actual large volume of users in this case, technical category, just get on with their design work with the easiest tools.
Perhaps one vital customer legal perspective is not evident. Let me paint the scene.
Teams is launched as a tool encouraging professional organisations to collect their most valuable intellectual property, "the engineers log book" in one central place.
That place is owned and solely controlled by Microsoft, who in reality **prevent** the customer to be able to locally backup or to present their ***own property*** in any reasonable or standard way, other that this interface.
I have witnessed in court cases where my dated log book has been entered into evidence to prove that a certain company had the right to certain knowledge.
My legal advice is.
"Logging into a teams server", or starting to invite lawyers for two opposing parties to view a team's content, would most likely not hold up as evidence.
So your "very nice tool" it has to be said, does not provide "reasonable functionality for the purpose for which it is sold".
It can be easily demonstrated via other suppliers that the functionality can be made easily.
The underlying intentions are hard to judge.
*Not enough votes for the functionality - is hard to take seriously.
*Supplier did not realize the implications - is equally hard to think that as a developer themselves, Microsoft are not aware of this factor.
I suspect, perhaps that Microsoft doesn't really see any revenue for all the work of implementing this.
But this functionality is a natural part of such a product. Perhaps Microsoft would like to answer this, .. because taken to the ultimate, this is potentially an anti-trust issue.
I've posted before, and I have just written to our IT to ask them to remove the tool for use for our technical staff upon the legal advice given.
We will allow it for the management level of the company only, about 12 people.
The other 120 developers will move over to Atlassian Wiki, because this can be stored and published when we need to. We can "save to PDF", and also Microsoft Word in seconds, and send a reviewed set of information out to collaborators, without having to manage "links to specific teams wiki pages, or a struggle to copy and paste a blog with diagrams which cannot be published.
Please tell me when it is done, at we can return to Teams for my technical staff.
I am quite angry at the time it has taken to find out about this.
I am asked to demonstrate my argument to the management, as this has a cost implication in increasing our atlassian licenses.
It will be no trouble to demonstrate this though...

This is a must as we will need to export what is essentially an instruction manual that we have made.
After staff spent hours collecting and compiling investigative work into a WIKI, leadership asked that we forward the information on to them. Much to our surprise - the material contained in the wiki could not be downloaded or exported...period. In order to meet a deadline, staff scrambled to copy, paste and re-format each individual entry into a Word document. I like the format of the WIKI pages. But since we are unable to download/export it into another format (like Word) - it is basically useless to this team. =(
