just want to make sure were on the same page
I'm looking over the documentation and I do not see anything specifically about auto pdf generation.
I see that you can generate pdfs, but through the portal.
I'm talking about every morning someone gets a pdf emailed to them. Or we generate a thousand of them quarterly for a client who will not touch the qlikview service or client/server or know it exist.
Maybe once a month go to a folder on the databse and pull the pdfs and submit them to the client.
Something like that.
I did just find this
The QlikView Publisher Distribution Wizard reloads the data, generates multiple
PDFs, and delivers these reports directly to users' inboxes or specified network locations.

How well does this work? Is it automated does anyone know?

In my experience, it works very well. It's very automated. The generation and distribution of the PDF is done as a Publisher Distribution task, so it runs on schedule like any other task. You can also do loop and distribute, so for example, loop through each customer and send the reduced PDF to the associated customer.
