https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/Content/NPrinting/GettingStarted/HowCreateConnections/Connect-...

  • Always one selected value for fields
  • Calculated dimensions
  • Drill-down dimensions
  • Alternate states
  • Sheet Triggers (introduced in Qlik Sense April 2020)
Note: Non-certified Qlik Sense extensions. 
3rd party custom visualizations are not supported such as those found on GITHUB.
  • Qlik Sense objects that connect to external servers, usually as additional data sources (Qlik GeoAnalytics, analytic connections)
  • Qlik Sense charts with Assistance enabled (disable 'chart assistance' in QS apps used with NP reporting only).

 

Working around unsupported items:

In many  cases, you will need to maintain the user experience.

  • Therefore, we recommend to make a copy of the original QVF and
  • Remove these items below from the Qlik Sense app (.qvf) copy
  • For NP reporting purposes, use the copied QVF (with unsupported items removed) with NP Connections

Note: NPrinting connection 'verification' does not check for unsupported items.


Other considerations: 


Best practices to consider: 

  • Invalid or incomplete measures/forumlas in Qlik Sense sheets - private or public - that contain invalid or incomplete measures/formulas should be repaired or removed. Errors may occur in the NPrinting connection and or report generation if not repaired.
  • Keep your expressions up-to-date
  • Use a dedicated QS app for reporting purposes
  • Remove private sheets from published apps
  • Ensure the above unsupported items and limitations are addressed/removed
  • Avoid extending Qlik Sense sheets used with NPrinting Reports. Use the default sheet dimensions only.
