Exporting selected lines as a story

I'm currently holding a database that include data on cars, with a bunch of metadata associated to each one, incl. price, size, engine, capacity, etc.

I'd like my user to be able to input their preferences (say brand and capacity), and for Qlik to automatically populate 'baseball cards' in the backend as a story, i.e. one card per vehicle with all its characteristics. Then, I would like to create a button that would allow the user to export the story as ppt so they can share it around.

Any idea on how this could be done?

Thanks!

I think what you're trying to accomplish is possible, but would be much easier with a mashup instead of a story. You can template the "baseball cards" in the mashup and pass on the selections from the Sense app directly.

Thanks @Chris_Rice , thats what I figured.

Could you expand a bit on mashups - never heard of them/it. Thanks!

Hey @lisabarelle ,

A Mashup is essentially a web page with Qlik Sense elements mixed in where necessary. It can be made of a single, or multiple Qlik Sense apps:
