We are excited to introduce tabular reporting from Qlik Cloud. Now customers can address common, centrally managed, tabular report distribution requirements from within a Qlik Sense Application! With tabular reporting, report developers can create custom and highly formatted XLS documents from Qlik data and Qlik visualizations; Governed Report Tasks can burst reports to any stakeholder, ensuring that the Qlik platform is the source for operational decisions, customer communications and more.

 

Some feature highlights:

  • Report template creation, using data and visualizations from a Qlik Sense App, all with the familiarity of Microsoft Office 365 using Add-in technology
  • Qlik Cloud governed report task control from within a Qlik Sense App
  • In app distribution list management to support burst report distribution to any stakeholder (internal or external)
  • Execution of Qlik NPrinting authored XLS report templates uploaded to Qlik Cloud
  • Powered by the Qlik Reporting Service, reports are delivered from a scalable cloud service that solves complex enterprise reporting jobs

 

Want to get started with your first Tabular Report?

Access our Getting Started section in your Qlik Cloud app (available for users with Can Edit permissions). Open your app, (a) choose your activity, and select (b) Reporting.

@Or  This is a centralized reporting solution on Qlik Cloud only. For a similar use case in client managed you would look to Qlik NPrinting, a value-add product.  

The Add-in is delivered with the report developer in mind for the purpose of report template creation; however, the deployment of the add-in in O365 governs who can use the Add-in and the user requirement is access Qlik Cloud.  Whereas the app level report task controls require Edit or Edit with Data permissions in the space.  You are welcome to explore and offer suggestions on our ideation portal around how the  Add-in might improve the experience of the analytics user. 

We continually review the the documented limitations.  Certain object types/hypercube types do have some technical limitations when delivering the complex reporting composition that is possible.  At this time 3rd party extensions are not supported in reporting use cases on Qlik Cloud - please continue to refer to help documentation.

@Andrew_Kruger Thanks for the extra information. Not what I was hoping to hear, but I understand that there are certain limitations that one has to live with, though the limitations that seem to exist at the moment seem fairly restrictive. Perhaps something that will be improved on moving forward...

I think the use case for how this improves life for an end user is pretty clear - the ability to easily get your own templates built within the familiar environment of Excel, using drag-and-drop, and timed to arrive in your own inbox is exactly the sort of self-service many users are clamoring for. That said, being that my interest is mostly in Qlik Sense Enterprise, and given that NPrinting is about as far from being self-service as you can get (even developers find it excessively difficult to work with), I'm content to wait and see how Qlik moves forward with this functionality and whether or not it can be a path to self-service for end users.

Evaluation for Static Reporting

I set this all up years back (for a client) using Snip and paste. Im trying to find an alternative that can be automated.

I tried Subsciptions but the Rendering quality is awful. Esp for tables. It can only load Charts from one App. And the PDF is very limited. So now I'm looking at this plug-in. but so far I can't say Im overly impressed with the rendering quality. Once again esp for tables.

Is there an article on how to improve this aspect. Because I want the client to send out very professional static reports preferably using Qlik's build-in reporting tools.

 

Thanks Robert

Hi,

I'm having trouble finding information about the price of Qlik Cloud Tabular Reporting.

You say it's part of the Qlik Cloud Reporting capabilities. Does this mean that the 100 reports included in the basic package count for xlsx and pdf combined?

Thanks!

Regards

Amélie
