Hi, I’ve created a custom app which uses chart.js and tables to display custom reports on individual records pulling data from linked tables. I am very happy with what has been created but I am unable access these reports outside of the airtable blocks environment.

Is there a way to export this data to pdf or create a print functionality (similar to that which exists in the coding block)?

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.
