Hi,

If you have an email address set in "Override Mail" all emails will go to that mail address. If you want the mail to go to users, you will need to remove the address from the Override field.

Re: PDF report & Email distrubution

Do you have Qlikview Publisher License?

If you have, it has PDF_GENERATION;YES;; flag?

Send reports as pdf you need to have a DSC with email attributes like CUSTOM, Active Directory.

Hi,

See if this will help you in the setup. Also, Ricardo is correct about checking you LEF to see if PDF is enabled.

Re: PDF report & Email distrubution

Take a look at the Reduced document name setting.

Warning indicates that you have not set a unique value so it will overwrite with the same over and over.

Re: PDF report & Email distrubution

Look at the second page of the document, where I talk about  "Document name with the Region".

That should change the document name based on region.
