Allow subset of "Export App Data" actions

I see again in the February 2019 documentation that the ability to deny export to Excel only (while maintaining the ability to print and export to PDF) is still not present.

When will the feature be added?

2019-04-15 14_21_18-Actions (Basic view) ‒ Qlik Sense.png

 

 

In our efforts to grow a more data literate culture, we have decided to prevent our users from exporting to Excel.  This keeps Qlik Sense from being used exclusively as a data shovel.  It also encourages users to learn the tool and see what benefits being on the Qlik platform provides.

That being said, we have a lot of business users that really like to see printed PDFs.  They like to print out data from Qlik Sense and review it while not connected to the internet (airplanes, out in the field).  Since we have pulled the export to excel privilege, they have lost the ability to perform basic prints and PDF exports.

Are there any plans to resolve this?  This is our top challenge right now getting our enterprise version out to a wider audience.

 

Thanks
