How to Create Jobs

    Jobs are lists of tasks which you want to run sequentially, in a specific order. No task begins before the previous has finished. A typical job includes a reload task to update the data in the QlikView document followed by a series of  Report tasks. Tasks run in the order in which they appear in the Job, so be sure to put the Reload task first.
