Embedding a single chart. June 19

The latest Qlik Sense June 19 version ships with a nice new feature that should let anyone to embed or share a chart in style.


How to


It’s simple, find the chart you want to embed and right-click on it, you should access to the context menu where you could for example see the data table for the chart you are looking at. In this case what we want to click on in that menu is the option called “Embed Chart”. Note if your screen mode is set to touch, you will find this option by touching in the vertical ellipsis (aka Kebab Menu) icon.

That will pop a window up with a nice preview of the chart and some options that are very handy.
