    Keep it relevant


    For everyone's benefit please stay on topic. Qlik Community is specifically provided to allow users and customers of Qlik to help each other in using Qlik products and associated assistance from Qlik. Please refrain from discussing off-topic matters, abusing any company or product, or, in general, from posting in a manner unrelated to the resolution of issues regarding Qlik product and services.


    Keep it courteous


    Everyone wants to have a positive experience while Qlik Community – your use of Qlik Community should not detract from any other user's experience. In particular, please refrain from posting anything defamatory, obscene, infringing or other unlawful material or information.

    Your opinions are always welcome, but personal attacks and harassment ("flaming") of other members in either Qlik Community or through Private Messaging (PM) is not acceptable.


    Keep it clear


    Please communicate clearly so everyone may understand. Avoid using slang, "net speak" or any other wording which might be difficult for all users to understand.  We are a diverse community and seek to provide a comfortable environment where you can easily get help from other users. We ask that you post resources and discussion topics in English language so the majority of members can read and respond. We also offer alternate language groups to foster interaction in your local language. If you need help locating an alternate language group please email the Qlik Community Manager.


    Keep it spam-free


    Qlik Community is provided as a service to Qlik users and customers and is not intended for the promotion of yours or other third party services, products, websites, or organizations. Posting content that would constitute advertising, junk mail, spam, chain letters, or any other form of solicitation will not be tolerated.


    If you do share or promote your materials or products, please be sure referencing them is directly relevant to the topic at hand.  Please only share or promote materials which you own or have the rights to distribute, and which you provide free of charge in entirety on Qlik Community. Documents, links and downloads referencing content owned by other entities, linking to an external site requiring payment or personal information will be deleted.

    Community moderators


    Qlik Community is staffed entirely by Qlik employees. Qlik may designate certain non-employee members as a guest blogger or feature them as a valued member of Qlik Community.  This designation does not create an employee or agency relationship between Qlik and this member, nor does it make this member a company spokesperson.  Instead, the designation allows Qlik Community to know which members have been helpful, have provided constructive advice and have set a positive example and tone for Qlik Community.  Like any information posted on the Community, the opinions and advice provided by these members are their own and are subject to these guidelines and Terms of Use.

    Qlik’s name, logo and imagery are protected by intellectual property laws and not intended to be used by non-employees.  Members are not permitted to use Qlik’s intellectual property in profile names, images, descriptions, any postings or otherwise in Qlik Community.
