In the cloud hub, you can create, share, and interact with analytic apps. You can also add and interact with other content such as links, charts, and data sources.
The cloud hub is divided into four sections:
You can access the following from all sections:
Ask Insight Advisor: Use a chat-based interface for conversational analytics.
Add new: Add new content and spaces to the cloud hub.
Notifications: View your web notifications.
When you log into the cloud hub, you start in Home. The first time you log into the cloud hub, Home will have a welcome message containing resources for getting started. If you close this message, you can choose to show it again in Settings.
What you see in Home depends on your license. If you have a professional license, Home displays content you created, charts you have added to the hub, and your favorite content. If you have an analyzer license, Home displays recently added apps, charts you have added to the hub, and your favorite apps.
Click the Customize your home button to add or remove sections.
Available sections are organized under three tabs:
Your collections: Collections you can access.
Generated: Apps, charts, recently updated items, recently created items, and external links.
Resources: Qlik educational tools.
Click the + icon to add a section. Click the house icon to remove a section.
You can also rearrange or remove sections directly on Home:
Move a section: click and hold to move sections vertically.
Remove a section: click to remove a section.
In Explore, you can view the apps and spaces to which you have access, as well as other content. By default, Explore displays all apps, charts, and links from the spaces to which you have access. You can select individual spaces from the spaces drop-down to view apps, links, and charts from that space. You can filter the types of content displayed.
You can view apps and other content in either a tile view or list view. You can select what type of content to display. You can also filter content by tag. When filtering content by tag, you will only see the tags that contain at least one app, link, or chart to which you have access.
Apps can be sorted by alphabetically, by creation date, or by modification date. You can filter apps by apps you own or apps others own.
Collections enable you to group both your own apps, charts, and links as well as those of other cloud hub members. Collections displays your collections. All users have a Favorites collection. The Favorites collection cannot be deleted. Your collections are not shared with other cloud hub members.
To add content to a collection, click the Add to collection icon on an app, chart, or link and select an existing or new collection.
As of the October 2020 release of SaaS editions of Qlik Sense, Favorites have been made part of collections. All content previously in Favorites is now in the default collection Favorites.

Each app in the cloud hub displays the app name, owner, and the modification date. You can view the type of app and tags applied to the app by hovering your cursor over an app. On a touch device, you can view the app type and tags by tapping on the app. You can click on the app to open it.

You can also add QlikView apps to the cloud hub. QlikView apps can only be viewed and have different options than Qlik Sense apps in the cloud hub. For more information, see QlikView in SaaS editions of Qlik Sense.
You can add visualizations from apps into the cloud hub. This enables you to closely monitor important visualizations without opening apps.
Spaces are areas in the cloud 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 a professional license 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 administrators. 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 Explore. You can also create new spaces from the spaces drop-down.
For information on spaces, see:
Organizing apps in the cloud hub
You can organize apps using tags and collections.
You can add tags to your apps to group them with related apps. Apps can be tagged during creation or by editing the app. You can only tag your own apps or apps in a space in which you have edit permission. Tags are shared in the cloud hub, but you can only view your own tags and tags assigned to apps that have been shared with you.
Collections enable you to group apps together for ease of access. Collections are private to each user. You can view your collections in Collections.
You can receive notifications for events in the cloud hub, such as for when new apps are added to a space or when you are added to a space. You can view them by clicking the Notifications icon. You can manage your notification subscriptions in Settings.
