PDF distribution

i can't seem to get a straight answer wherever i turn on this. So please help me community!

We have an enterprise edition server with a publisher licence. Is it possible to automatically distribute PDFs to numerous recipients using the set up we currently have? Or do we have to fork out a fortune for NPrinting or a separate distribution server?

I have read something about a distribution add-on, but can't seem to find much about it.

Hi Alex,

PDF generation is a specific setting on the publisher licence, you'll need to (ask the team) if this is present.

You'll need to look at your publisher licence LEF file contents (easiest way is to look within licence tab on QMC), this will need to include the line

PDF_GENERATION;YES;;

for you to have this functionality, otherwise it won't be possible to use

hope that helps

yes. But i don't manage the server, I am only the designer.

The team that are managing the server are telling me they are not sure they can distribute the PDF though, which i why i am asking.

Hi,

For sending pdf you have email id of users(by which user access the dashboards)

i am explaining Custom Directory scenario-

1- create custom directory

2-create a user with name,id,password and email id.

3-then go to QMS->System->setup->mail server( here you put your company stmp details).

4-you can send pdf  only your company email ids (what ever you will put in mail server).

5-Now come in report (Qlikview Application)

Create a report in your application ->then create pdf reports using Reports option in your qlikview desktop.

6-  now call email ids in your application by excel..

7 for further i will send snap shot

Thanks Andrew. There is a line in the manual that says

"With the additional component QlikView Publisher Report Distribution, any QlikView document report can be distributed as a .pdf file to a folder or via email or SMTP."

Is this something additional we need?

Hi Alex,

done a bit of digging and it is part of Publisher, be it's only enabled with add-on licence

QlikView Publisher is licensed on a per server basis and includes a separately licensable option for PDF report distribution capabilities

So you need to connect you Qlik rep. or look at NPrinting

Hope this helps.

"PDF Report Distribution Service" is a Publisher add-on separately listed on the QlikView price list.
