Dear Community,

I am a new Qlik user and am evaluating the free version of SENSE.

Does Qlik automatically update the data if it is linked?

Basically if I open the XLSX data source in my local drive and add a few lines of data, will Qlik pick this up automatically?

Or do I need to do some kind of reload?

Thanks in advance for any help.

You will need to do a manual reload.

If you have the Enterprise version of Qlik Sense, you can schedule reloads.

May you live in interesting times!
