Qlik NPrinting September 2017 has been released to the customer download site.  This release includes several key capabilities as described below. 

 

  • Report Cycles - Qlik NPrinting September 2017 can generate a separate report file for each combination of one or more dimension values. Each report will be filtered according with the combination of values that generates it. For example, the report file generated for the combination Year = 2017 and Country = USA will contain only data related to USA in 2017. Each generated report file will have a unique and customizable filename. For this reason, the dynamic naming feature will be enabled every time you select cycling. This was a gap feature from Qlik NPrinting 16.

 

  • Report Export/Import - It is possible to export a report into a compressed file and import it into a different installation of Qlik NPrinting 17. This is useful when you have separate development and production servers. Upgraded reports can be replaced in the final destination. Exported compressed files also contain other information related to the report, like users and filters.

 

  • Object filters for Qlik Sense Charts - Allows you to apply a filter to a single Qlik Sense object like a chart without applying that filter to all objects in the report.  It can also be used to block filtering of an object so that even though the rest of the report has filters applied, that object doesn't.  Previously you could only add filters to QlikView charts. You can still add only one filter for each chart.

NPrinting_CentDist_Reports_color.jpgAll products constantly evolve based on customer demand and technology Innovation and this is certainly what drives the Qlik NPrinting product team.  When the first release of Qlik NPrinting (then Vizubi) was released in 2008 you would not have recognized the product as the one you know today.  

 

As we await the next release - scheduled for the end of June - we thought we would share what you might expect to find this time:

 

  • Extension Support for Qlik NPrinting – The ability to include most third-party extensions in Qlik NPrinting reports.
  • Metadata Reload Scheduling for Qlik NPrinting - Ability to schedule metadata reloads for Qlik NPrinting ensuring that developers always see the most recently built objects when building reports

What’s Cooking @ Qlik

This information and Qlik‘s strategy and possible future developments are subject to change and may be changed by Qlik at any time for any reason without notice. This information is provided without a warranty of any kind.  The information contained here may not be copied, distributed, or otherwise shared with any third party.


Qlik NPrinting 17 was virtually a complete rewrite of the Qlik NPrinting product as the Vizubi team became more integrated into the Qlik family.  As the year goes on, the feature gap between Qlik NPrinting 16 and Qlik NPrinting 17 will continue to narrow.  Of course, new capabilities will surface as well. 


Just a few of the items that we are evaluating over the coming months/year are:

  • Ability to Promote/Demote a report in order to move it from development to production
  • Additional feature parity between capabilities across QlikView and Qlik Sense
  • Updated Rendering Service


The investments that we have made in Qlik NPrinting 17 over the past year position us well for the year to come and beyond. We are looking forward to this being a great year for Qlik NPrinting 17 and its users!
