We have a group of low tech savy users who would like pdfs and we do not want to have to export them manually each time.
just want to make sure were on the same page
I'm looking over the documentation and I do not see anything specifically about auto pdf generation.
I see that you can generate pdfs, but through the portal.
I'm talking about every morning someone gets a pdf emailed to them. Or we generate a thousand of them quarterly for a client who will not touch the qlikview service or client/server or know it exist.
Maybe once a month go to a folder on the databse and pull the pdfs and submit them to the client.
Something like that.
I did just find this
The QlikView Publisher Distribution Wizard reloads the data, generates multiple
PDFs, and delivers these reports directly to users' inboxes or specified network locations.
(Additional license required.)
How well does this work? Is it automated does anyone know?

In my experience, it works very well. It's very automated. The generation and distribution of the PDF is done as a Publisher Distribution task, so it runs on schedule like any other task. You can also do loop and distribute, so for example, loop through each customer and send the reduced PDF to the associated customer.
Hi.. I want to how exactly we need to do this..
Can anyone please brief on how to configure this
I think this should work.. Thanks a lot Bill.
I'll just try and let you know
The setup for version 9 is a lot different. However, the functionality is there, but the users have to be in AD users to use email address. It was changed in version 11 to allow email address to be used in a table within the QVW. That way you could send them to people out side the domain.
