Creating QlikEntity reports

You can distribute visualizations from QlikView as .pdf or image files.

The available outputs depend on your reports and objects:

  • QlikView reports can only be exported as .pdf or .tiff.
  • QlikView objects, such as charts, sheets, or text boxes, can be exported as: .bmp, .gif, .jpeg, .csv, .skv, .tab, and .png.

    If they are printable in QlikView, they can also be exported as .pdf or .tiff.

See: Report output formats and Working with Qlik objects.

You can add filters to QlikEntity reports. Because they are .pdf or image files, you cannot edit or preview an entity report.
