Open to specific Bookmark

In QlikView we could specify a bookmark to be utilized upon opening a document. This ensured all users opening the document always opened to the exact same place and view. How would you do the same with QlikSense?

Re: Open to specific Bookmark

Hi Brian -

With Qlik Sense it seems to be done differently. You can create a bookmark where ever you are in the sheet for an app. That bookmark will be create under the bookmark sections in the App Overview page. It does require you to open that specific app however.

When a user accesses the app, they would navigate to the Bookmark section and click that bookmark and it will bring them to the sheet with the defined selections in that bookmark.

Is this similiar or close to what you would like to achieve?

Not exactly. That is no different than QlikView in the sense that the user can select the bookmark from the drop down in the toolbar. The directive given for the QV document was that it should always open to the same tab/interface for all users and it should always open with the same exact selections for all users (with the understanding that data reduction will be applied)

Re: Open to specific Bookmark

OK - thanks for the clarification - at this time - I don't see that option available in the product. I will check with support and submit this as a feature request.

Re: Open to specific Bookmark

This is currently not supported, but could be emulated using extensions.

define(["jquery","qlik"], function($, qlik) {

  paint : function() {

     qlik.currApp().bookmark.apply("<Bookmark1>");

  }

});

Please see the Toolbar Extension Example for more information, https://help.qlik.com/sense/en-us/developer/index.html#../Subsystems/Workbench/Content/CodeExamples/...
