Distributing reports to the Qlik Sense hub

You can distribute Qlik NPrinting reports to the Qlik Sense hub for Windows domain users who have been configured in both Qlik NPrinting and Qlik Sense.

Reports are private and can only be viewed by the intended user. You can have one Qlik Sense hub destination for a Qlik NPrinting deployment.

Note: In the Qlik Sense hub, users will only see the latest version of a report. They will not be able to access older versions of reports like they can in the NewsStand.
