Will the new version 17 NPrinting have the capability of using a QlikView Field for email "Send To" addresses?
We know NPrinting can send an email to a group of users (currently no dynamic option is available).
NPrinting needs to have the capability to send individual emails with their information just like "cycling" does for dynamically naming files.
I have 200 sales representatives who I need to email their daily performance reviews. It is my understanding that NPrinting can only send to a pre-set group and not dynamically to individuals.
This feature is really a "must" in dealing with many individual reports. I believe NPrinting v17 will have a subscription option but that is not effective if you need to push reports to individuals using emails.
I am looking for any suggestions or support to Qlik to include this functionality in NPrinting.
I'm not sure what 'dynamic' option you are looking for. Currently QlikView NPrinting allows you to maintain your list of recipients (Sales Reps. in your case) and their filters, groups and other information in a number of sources - in files like Excel, CSV etc., in any DBMS like Oracle etc., in a QlikView document and so on.
You can make changes as required and run an import recipient task to update your recipients in your NPrinting project. You add groups as recipients in a report task and when the task is run each recipient will get a report filtered according to the recipient filter definition. See How to Distribute User Specific QlikView Reports by E-mail Once this is set up you only need to make changes to your recipient source when required, run the import recipient task and then the report task. You can schedule this to happen automatically.
I am working through your suggestion to make sure I have understood the process to accomplish the objective.
My initial thought was if NPrinting would accept a "QlikView Field" for the "Send To" field then "issue solved". All the "filtering" takes place at the QlikView level and all NPrinting needs to do is cycle through the "SalesRep" field which will change the "EmailSalesRep".
