Hi. You cannot drag and drop data files to the script. Go to the Data Manager instead.

Hi, thanks for the reply,

I am not dragging the file into the script editor, I'm talking about the screen that pops up when you create a new app.

It sais you can drag files into it to add them, but it doesn't work

Hope it is clearer now

Re: adding data files via drag and rop not working

hi there, 

I have the same problem,

couldn't find much help on the forum or google

what I did find is a workaround

By default, Qlik Sense Desktop runs in a window of its own. But you can also open it in a web browser.

if you open a dataless/new app there, you can use the drag files feature.

here how to do it (from qlik help)

******************************

You must log in using Qlik Sense Desktop before you can open it in a web browser. (it has to stay open in the background)

Do the following:

  1. Start Qlik Sense Desktop from the start menu.
  2. Open a (supported) web browser.
  3. Type http://localhost:4848/hub in the browser address bar.

Qlik Sense Desktop opens in the web browser, showing the hub with all your apps.

************************************

until a solution pops up this can work

 edit:

I'm sorry, I just checked it and it's not working there either Smiley Sad

seems we are stuck with using the script or data manager
