New to Qlik Sense

I have a couple of questions as I am new to the application. First of all, when creating a story, I cannot get the embedded sheet message that pops up in the middle of the screen to go away and I also can't do any type of formatting. The bar comes up if I click on it but it's creyed out. Also, in the sheet option, I cannot get rid of the graph that appears below the one you are creating. Can anyone help?

Hello Kristin,

Welcome to the forums and Qlik Sense. Are you using Qlik Sense Desktop, Cloud or Server? I ask because I am not sure what level of access you have to the Data Story telling interface within the app. If you are in Server and using a published app that is available in a stream, you will not be able to create / edit a story if you are not the owner.  If you are using Desktop or Cloud and have created an app, visualizations and taken snapshots of your visualizations - you should be able to easily create a story. I'd like to see if this is just a education thing, or if there is an actual product issue with the behavior you are describing. Take a look at these resources also, if you still have an issue, please send us some screen-shots and steps to recreate the issues you are encountering.

Have you seen these videos in our online help - they show exactly how to use this feature.



For your reference there are also other videos in the community here:

Other questions - only applies if you are using Cloud / Enterprise - what browser are you using?

If using Desktop, what operating system are you on?

Please mark the appropriate replies as CORRECT / HELPFUL so our team and other members know that your question(s) has been answered to your satisfaction.
