Creating QlikEntity reports

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

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

Output formats

The available outputs depend on your reports and objects:

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

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

  • Qlik Sense objects: .bmp, .gif, .jpeg, .csv, .skv, .tab, and .png.

See: Report output formats and Working with Qlik objects.
