The easiest way if you have access to the QMC is to go to Apps. Highlight the app that needs to be reloaded. Click on the More Actions button at the bottom of the window and choose Create New Reload Task. That will take you to the Task Window. You can change the Name of the Task if you want. Then Click on Actions and choose the type of trigger you want (Daily, Weekly, etc.). Usually all you then need to change is the time of day to run this. Click on Apply.
Now this task is scheduled to run automatically.
If something changes and you want it to run sooner you can always start it manually in the QMC under tasks.
Hope that helps.
thanks.. I've tried this.
App scheduled to relaod and it works successfully, BUT it does not refelct the new data.
Let me note the steps, in case you can spot where it is going wrong:
We refresh an excel file daily.
This file is then copied and pasted in the file location on server, that qlik pulls from.
The excel file in the qlik folder is therefore replaced by the most recent version.
When reloading the app, it continues to only view data as of the previous day, and does not identify the new day's transactions that is on the refreshed source.
So I have to edit the app, reinsert the file and then reload.
Any further ideas to overcome this?
