    Enabling users to add comments to points on graphs

    hughprior

      I would like to know how I can use QlikView to let users add comments to specific points of interest on a graph. For example, if there is a point of interest (e.g. a particularly low/high point) in a graph, I'd like one user to be able to be able to write an annotation/comment which attaches itself to that point, and then for others to be able to read it.

      1) Is this possible?

      2) How?!

      Thanks!

          Hi Hugh

          It isn't natively supported sorry.

          One way of working around this is to allow server collaboration objects. A user can then create a text object with transparent background where he adds his notes and then position this on top of the graph.

          Not a very pretty solution but the only way I see this can be achieved. I would recommend instead to put the practice in place that if a point of interest is found, the selection is bookmarked and the user send the bookmark together with an explanation in the email about what he found.
