How to Share Bookmarks in Qlik Sense

Qlik Sense April 2020 introduced the option to share published bookmarks directly form a Qlik Sense app.

Previous versions from February 2019 require the addition of a share button to generate a link that acts similar to a bookmark. The share button is included in the Dashboard bundle.

Versions prior to February 2019 did not have a sharing feature built-in.


Qlik Sense April 2020


1. Create a bookmark. The bookmark menu can be located in the top right corner of the Qlik Sense app overview. 


2. Once the bookmark has been created and saved, navigate back to the bookmark menu.
3. Right click the bookmark that you wish to share.
4. Select Publish

You can also click Copy link - this will show a warning that the bookmark needs to be published. When confirming the warning, the bookmark will be automatically published. 


5. After publishing the bookmark, Right click the bookmark again.
6. Select Copy link   


7. This link can now be shared with anyone who has access to the application.
