In QlikView 9 we can now publish QlikView Reports to pdf and have them looped and reduced and emailed to the QlikView user community which is a long awaited new feature. Does anybody know definitively whether we can distribute these pdf reports to non-QlikView users / license holders...in other words they would simply consume the pdf report attached to their email but never logon to the QlikView Server. I am assuming that this can be done but would like to know for sure.
Im trying to develop an application that need to meet similar requirements. Have you already tried using this feature? I just have some questions which are quite unclear to me.
Will it be able to handle a scheduled automatic sending of email report attachment (pdf) to a limited number of external Users (Not all users)
i.e., Given there will be another system that maintains the User accounts with the information of email and status if the user has to be sent an email attachment, can this information be used by Qlikview when sending out the PDF Report Attachments - as well as reduce the data depending on the user type (defined by a Group where user belongs)?
If there will be a web page outside Qlikview that will allow users to download generated static PDF reports, how can the generation of static reports be integrated with Qlikview? Is this also covered by the PDF Distributor?
I would appreciate your help sir. Thanks in advance.
It's correct that you can only email to usernames that are in your directory (AD if that's what you're using). But the email address associated with that "user" can be an mail group that contains email addresses outside your domain.
