Designing reports

You can create complex, customizable reports using your QlikView and Qlik Sense data. This makes it easy to share Qlik insights with users who need your data in different formats.

Information noteYou need to install Qlik NPrinting Designer on all computers that you will use to develop report templates. See Installing Qlik NPrinting Designer.
Warning noteReport templates should only be edited by one person at a time. While it is possible for two people to open a report template in Qlik NPrinting Designer, this is not supported.

Excel, Word, and PowerPoint reports can be downloaded and modified by recipients, because they are standard Microsoft Office files.
