This lesson demonstrates the procedure for creating a task. It is presumed that you are familiar with common NPrinting procedures.
We are going to create and send an e-mail message having a Word, an Excel, and a PowerPoint report as attachments and an HTML report embedded in the message body.
For the purpose of this demo, the following needs to have already been done:
When activated it closes the connection to the QlikView document after task execution without saving the .qvw. It is disabled by default.
If you enable this flag and the next task uses the same .qvws you will need to wait for the .qvw files to re-open. All QlikView selections are restored to the initial status.
If you disable this flag the .qvws will be closed when the task ends. This frees up computer RAM.
Click on the Add icon in the Reports group of the tool bar.
Choose the Output Format for the reports you want to distribute in a format different from their native ones
The PowerPoint, Word and PixelPerfect reports will be issued as PDF reports, while the Excel and HTML reports will be issued in their native formats for the purpose of this tutorial.
To embed the HTML reports in the message reopen the Select tags window
Repeat this procedure for the Simple PixelPerfect Report (HTML)
Conclude the message and click on the floppy disk icon at the left end of the toolbar to save the message in the task
In the e-mail body you should find the embedded HTML reports. The three other reports are included as attachments.
