How do I create tasks in QMC?

Hi,

Should you mean Publisher tasks, first of all, you need to have Publisher correctly licensed in your Server. You can check that going to the QMC (assuming you are using version 11), System, Licenses, QlikView Publisher.

Second, once your Publisher is licensed, you will see a "Documents" tab with two options: "Source documents" and "User Documents". Click on any Source Document you will see a "+" (plus) button, where a wizard will let you create new tasks.

If you don't have Publisher and you want to create reload tasks, go to the Documents tab and click on any document. There is a Reload tab in the right part of the site where you can set when the reload will be triggered. Without Publisher, you can only reload documents, but not distribute them.

Hope that helps.

Well yes,

Expand your server by clicking on the [+] sign at the left of the "QDS@fapreport" to see all your source documents according to the source folder specified in the QEMC, System, Setup, Distribution Services, General, Source Folders.

Hope that helps.

Hi Miguel,

Is it possible to create a task  other than reload task if I don't have publisher license?

Thanks,

Re: How do I create tasks in QMC?

Hi Arnold,

No, it's not possible. The Server, either EE or SBE allows you to reload, but that's all. You should use the qv.exe and the /r parameter integrated with your corporate task scheduler or Windows task scheduler, then use document or field event triggers when the file opens so you can reduce or distribute. However, Support for this is very limited, because that's what Publisher is intended to.

Regards.

I just learnt that this was because the tasks I've carried out to remove publisher wasn't sufficient to see that tab.

Re: How do I create tasks in QMC?

Hi Miguel,

I am  able to see QVW's I worked on in the Source documents but there are two new qvw's I created few days ago and when I went to QMC Source Documents to create tasks for these new qvw's, I do not see them listed in the Source Documents. Can you please advise on this.

Thanks
