Qlik Sense Business / QCS - SharePoint Connector missing functionality?
Hi there, it seems on QCS/Qlik Sense Business, you are not able to import data from a file (i.e. an excel spreadsheet) within a Document Library. This is possible from Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows.
On Windows, there is an option to "GetFile" - see below
Yes, I've come up against this also and spent quite a while trying to make it work. You can load from lists in Sharepoint, but not from files stored on Sharepoint, either directly ot by downloading to another location (such as DataFiles) first.
I have raised this with @chrisbrain at Qlik, and he has confirmed that it is a current shortcoming. He has also agreed that Sharepoint folders should be mounted as a Web File connector (like Dropbox or S3). No idea when we are likely to see this appear though.
Hi @stevedark, thanks. I've tried a few different ways to access SP files to no avail. Francisco from Qlik Support confirm the bug / missing functionality yesterday and have added to the R&D list (Support call ref 01992087 if anyone from Qlik R&D are reading this 😉).
Hopefully it will be addressed soon, as, this is one of the areas we need to be functional to compete with other solutions in our market, mentioning no names.
