Re: Qlik Sense Sharing

Hi David,

Just locate the QVF file and send it to the people you want to share with.

C:\Users\<youruser>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps\

They will need to copy in the same folder you created it.

P.S.: From the FAQ:

Can I share apps created in Qlik Sense Desktop?

Yes. There are no limitations in sharing applications between different installations/instances of Qlik Sense Desktop.

Note: QVF files need to be located in a specific folder - C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps

The folder cannot be a shared drive folder or a shared folder. Once a qvf is open, it is modified so other instances of the Desktop cannot open it or copy it.

Re: Qlik Sense Sharing

What about the associated data for the app? Will the user be able to refresh their data if say the data is on a shared drive folder?

Hi Brian,

That should be possible as long as the user has permissions to read data from the shared folder. Just remember to create the Data Connection using a UNC path and not a mapped network drive (as the drive may not be mapped by the other user)

Re: Qlik Sense Sharing

What about QlikView ?

Can I save the qvf projects to qvw format so my colleague can open it on his laptop ?
