You may want to create a work order as a PDF file, so you can easily share your work. Work Order Snap lets you quickly save a work order you as a PDF file you have already created.
Work Order Snap is available in the Google Web Store, and can be added to your web browser as a Google Chrome extension.
There are only a couple steps to save a work order as a PDF file.
Steps to save a work order as a PDF file:
Step 1: View an existing work order
From the work order list page, click the Open button on any work order you have created:
Your work order will open in a view-only format in a new browser tab. This will allow you to print a clean and professional looking work order.
Step 2: Click the Print button
There is a Print button in the upper left of the view-only work order page. We say you are printing the work order PDF file because Work Order Snap uses the web browser print feature to save the work order to the PDF.
After clicking this button, the web browser print feature will open, allowing you to print to the formats available on your computer. One of those formats is the ability to print to a PDF file. If you “print” to a PDF file, you will be able to create a PDF version of your work order.

Step 3: Set your web browser to Save As PDF
Your Chrome web browser should have an option to select the destination of your work order.
Select the “Save as PDF” print option as shown above. This will instruct your web browser print feature to instead save the work order as a PDF file on your computer instead of printing a paper copy to a printer.
Step 4: Print the work order to a PDF file
Click the Print button on the web browser print feature.
You will be prompted where your PDF file will be saved. This is so you can easily find the file once the work order PDF file has been created. Keep a note of where the file will be saved.
The work order will then be saved as a PDF file on your computer.
Step 5: Find the work order PDF file you created
You can find the work order PDF by navigating to where the file was created by your web browser.
You can then view the PDF work order if you like, by right clicking on the file and selecting “Open With”. You can then select the program you prefer to view the PDF file. Since you are using the Chrome web browser, you can easily just use this to view your PDF file.
If you want to print the work order, you can either change the print setting to an available printer, or open the PDF file using PDF viewing software you have available, then using that software print functionality. You can also just open the PDF file in your web browser, and select your browser print feature.
