Re: BookMark help

As far as my knowledge we cannot create single bookmark to use it for different applications. However a user can share the bookmark to other user who is using the same application.

"Share Bookmark with Other Users"

Sharing User Created Bookmarks - Not Working

Re: BookMark help

Hi,

It is not possible to distribute/copy bookmarks from one application to another application.

Re: BookMark help

Hi Mahamed,

Bookmarks created in a document are tied with the same document using .shared file.

If I understand it correct, Main_Application is also a distributed application and the other Appliction1, Application2, Application3.... are kind of subset of Main_Application.

So, if a user creates a bookmark in Main_Application, those will reside in Main_Application.qvw.shared file.


if you want these bookmarks to be available in all the other documents as well, you should manually copy Main_Application.qvw.shared file and rename it as Appliction1.qvw.shared, Application2.qvw.shared etc.


The catch here is its a one time activity.


Once you copy and replace the shared file to the other distributed documents, all the existing bookmarks will be lost.


New bookmarks created in Main_Application.qvw are not automatically transferable.


Hope, it helps.



Cheers,

Naresh

Re: BookMark help

Dear Naresh,

Appreciate for your advise.

My scenario is not like if Main application has few bookmarks and tht should not be displayed in sub app.

I am already having few bookmarks in main and those are reflecting in sub app. and tht should be remain too.

What I need is Other than main application bookmarks the sub app should have there own separate bookmark too.

Hope now you get it.

Regards,

Mahamed

Re: BookMark help

Whenever users create bookmarks in the sub app, those will remain in the same app and these are individual to the respected documents.

Re: BookMark help

Yes,

But Business don't want this to be done by user.

How can we achieve this dynamic using Qlik only?

Re: BookMark help

Sorry... I don't think I got you clearly.

You mean the bookmarks should be created by Qlik automatically?

Or the bookmarks to be transferred to all the distributed documents once the user creates a bookmark in one document?
