Re: Mobile reports in QlikView personal edition

Hi again Igor

OK. If you have no access to a QlikView server (not the same product as QV Desktop), what you can do instead:

1. Find the resolution of the mobile device you want to test your app (e.g. 1024x768)

2. Go to View menu -> Resize Windows and select the same resolution

3. Build your dashboard there, and then activate the webview mode (View menu-> Turn On WebView) to simulate the AJAX environment and see you your app will look like in a mobile browser.

I hope this helps

Hi Igor

Of course you can CREATE such a dashboard.

However, in order to access these dashboards with your Android devices, you need to use QlikView Server, for sharing the document, and your mobile browser to open the access point and open the document.

What I would suggest, since you are looking for something for mobile devices, I thing you should include Qlik Sense in your test. The same power as Qlik View (they use the same calculation engine) but with more flexibility and a Responsive front end design, meaning that the app resolution can be adjusted automatically according to the device resolution.

I think this is much closer to what you're looking for.
