By default, collections are private. Tenant admins and analytic admins can make collections public to share them with all other members of the tenant.

To make a collection public, click More actions on the collection, select Make public, and click Make public. To make a public collection private again, click More actions, select Make private, and click Make private.

Information noteAn empty collection cannot be made public.

Spaces are areas in the hub where apps are stored. Spaces can be personal, shared, or managed.

All users have a personal space where apps they create are stored by default. Personal spaces are private. You can share your personal apps by moving them to a shared space.

Users with the Shared Space Creator role can create shared spaces. Shared spaces are private when first created. Shared spaces allow collaborative development of apps. Spaces also limit access to apps in the space. Access to apps in the space is granted by adding members to the space.

Managed spaces can be created by tenant or analytics administrators, or users with the Managed Space Creator role. Managed spaces are used to provide strictly controlled access to apps that might have sensitive data. Apps are developed in other spaces and then published to the managed space.

You can select spaces to which you have access to from the drop-down in Catalog. You can also create new spaces from the spaces drop-down.

For information on spaces, see Working in spaces.

Navigating spaces

Shared and managed spaces are divided into the following sections:

  • Details
  • Notification preferences
  • Members
  • Data sources
  • Edit space

You can access these sections by selecting Space details in a shared or managed space.

In a personal space, you can only select Data sources. Select your user profile menu to manage other personal space settings.

Organizing content in the hub

You can organize content such as apps, charts, automations, experiments and notes using tags and collections.

You can add tags to content to group it with related content. You can only tag your own content, or content in a space in which you have edit permissions. Tags are shared in the hub.

Collections enable you to group content together for ease of access.


You can receive notifications in the hub for events that occur in Qlik Cloud. For example, when new apps are added to a space or when an alert is triggered. You can view them by clicking the Notifications icon. You can manage your tenant-level notifications in Profile settings. You can configure your notifications for an individual space by opening the space in Catalog and clicking Space details > Notifications in Catalog. To configure your notifications for an individual item (for example, an app or a note), click More on the item, and select Notifications.

Notifications can be sent by web in the hub or by email. If you have Qlik Sense Mobile SaaS, web notifications can be pushed to your mobile device.

Information noteGroups cannot receive notifications. If you have been added to a space as a part of a group, you cannot receive notifications from that space.
Information noteEmail notifications require an email server configured for your tenant. If email notifications cannot be selected in Notifications, your tenant administrator may not have configured an email server.
