I have a QV dashboard with 10 different users, I need to know who is actually using the dashboard and when ( Its an internal debate issue !!)
Our support have told me that there is no easy way to record this so I was thinking that ( AND I DONT KNOW IF THIS IS POSSBLE)
as a work around --
Hide all sheets - bar one
On this sheet put a button that when toggled
shows all sheets and
*Presumably uses a macro to update an Excel file on the s drive with data based on users info
-- Hence I would have a log of all users!!!
Has anyone got any feedback on this ?
Do you think its possible?
Should I not even try and persue it ?
Any advice greatly appreciated
Solved! Go to Solution.
A problem that you may encounter is that users will have to accept System Level macros when they open the application.
There are some posts that describe how to force this through registry entries.
If you can be sure that users have accepted system level macros, you don't need to use a button or hide any sheets.
You can set a macro to run when the document is opened.
I have never successfully used macros in QV , today this will change !!
I have seen that message and to be fair to our users they tend to always check for allowance,
its easy enough for me to communicate with them to allow them anyway !!
Do you have any sample of a QV macro that runs on open , or any macro that I can look at ?
You might find the Audit logs of interest for this requirement which reside at ...
C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Qvs on the server, but you will need to switch on client activity logging in QEMC.
