You can use buttons to:

  • add quick links for easy selection and navigation in your app

  • reload data

  • run automations

Information note

Buttons can only be added in advanced edit mode.

When to use it

The button is useful when you want to help the app user by providing:

  • predefined selections or selection controls
  • navigation links to other sheets, stories, or websites
  • reload data functionality in an app
  • the ability to run an automation from an app.

You can reload data in an app that you own. App users need edit permissions. For more information, see Managing permissions in shared spaces or Managing permissions in managed spaces.

Example of buttons in use on a sheet

Four buttons as they appear in Qlik Sense. They are labelled Reload Data, Clear Selections, Previous Sheet, and Next Sheet.
