Hello!

Desktop is a single user solution, only accessible from the computer on which it is run.

With Qlik Sense Desktop has these restrictions:

- You need to do the upgrade always.

- Security is absent.

- The job is saved on the Cloud.

- Qlik collects information on the use of the product (hours per day). Does not collect the data used.

- You can sharing the qvf files.

- QVF files can not be saved on a network drive.

Hi Stefano - thanks for your support and contributions, I wanted to clarify a couple of points you made,  just for your edification:

  • The job is saved on the Cloud - this is optional - by default the .qvf file is saved to the local drive App folder. The QVF (app) can be then upload to the Qlik Cloud Sharing service (Beta).
  • QVF files can not be saved on a network drive. - the product only saves the .qvf files on the local drive App folder.
