You will be able to see your data model and script but not the dashboard,

It's not possible to recover the QlikView objects

Djallel response is correct.

Unfortunately you can not migrate Sense QlikView objects , because the objects are different.

You 'll have to create new objects in Sense, but if you have items that are very complex , see if you got everything you use in the Sense objects. Sometimes properties are in QlikView objects are not available in Sense.

You'll have to do a pre- feasibility analisys .

Good Luck

You could with the help of fasttrack migrate your dimensions and measures as well http://branch.qlik.com/projects/showthread.php?441-Fasttrack-QlikView-to-QlikSense

But as previous comments mention you cant migrate charts and other QlikView objects to Sense since the charts and layout is to different in sense.

Hi Sasi,

Watch this video Qlik Sense Desktop - Converting a QlikView Data Model (video)

However, you can't convert QlikView objects to Qlik Sense.

Hi Sasi,

You Could Copy the Data model of Qlikview to Qliksense.But Qlikview and Qliksense objects are different that's we are not able to see qlikview Dashboard into Qliksense.
