    reduce and distribute

    Ali Hijazi

      Hello

      I got a qlikview document in which I want to filter data based on brand managers and distribute the filtered document to a folder path

      I got 7 brand managers (each has a username on the company's domain)

      what is the best scenario

      create a task that reduces data for the seven selected values of the brand managers and distribute the reduced documents to the 7 users in one task or create seven tasks?

      knowing that these 7 brand managers need not to see the distributed documents of others

          Hi,

           

             You can have have a single task which will reduce the data depending on the field you select, and in same task you can distribute each file in folder.

           

             Checout for reduce and distribute option while creating task.

              you mean under the distribute Tab-> loop field in document create a recipient based on email address?

              well the brand managers have email addresses in some table does this mean that if I apply this scenario in the access point the manager will see only his/ her document?

                  Hi,

                   

                     Go to the Reduce tab. Select the "Reduce by Field Value"

                   

                     Here the field will be the field through which you differentiat the managers.

                   

                     In distrubution tab you have called "Distribute via Email"

                   

                     This will be enable if you have Email Configured in Qlikview Server.

                      i DON'T want to distribute via emails

                      I want to distribute to a folder path (folder for doucments related to access points)

                      and then when a user browses to the access point, he,she only sees the related document identified by the user's emails addres

                          Hi,

                           

                              You can distribute to a folder from distribute tab. You will see the option at bottom - Distribute to folder.

                           

                               You can also do the settings to display file to specific user. This settings you need to do from OS only.

                           

                              For example.

                           

                              Go to the properties of folder. Go to security tab. Here you can define the users who can access to that folder.

                           

                              So you can create a different folder for each of the manager and give access to them.

                              then I need to create 7 tasks each for each manager

                              since in one task I need to specify the user to whom the document has to be displayed / distributed

                              in this way the 7 managers will see the 7 documents

                               

                              under the distribute tab there is the loop in field document how can i use this to specify each document to a manager in one task?

                                      You have to click on open document.

                                    

                                      Select the field.

                                   

                                      Select Check user identity on..

                                   

                                      Specify the Destination Folder.

                                      yeah this is what I did

                                      I have the UserPrincipalName equals the email address which is in a field called email

                                      so I selected the field email and selected the UserPrincipalName as the user identity

                                      however the distributed documents don't have the security privilege for the active directory users whom are supposed to be identified by the userPrincipalName

                                       

                                      Please advise!!
