Bookmark types

There are different types of bookmarks:

Document bookmarks are stored inside the qvw document. They will always be available to whoever opens the document locally or from a QlikView Server.
User bookmarks are stored separately on the user’s computer. They will only be available to the user who created them on the computer where they were created. If the document is moved or renamed all personal bookmarks related to it will be lost.
Personal Server bookmarks are only available when working with a document on QlikView Server and only to authenticated users. They are stored in a repository on the server and are accessible to the user from any computer where authenticated.
Shared Server bookmarks are only available when working with a document on QlikView Server and only to authenticated users. Any user who has created a personal server bookmark may flag this as shared to other users. They will then become available to other users. Just like personal server bookmarks shared server bookmarks are stored in a repository on the server.
Temporary bookmarks are created by QlikView when some functions are used, such as Mail with Bookmark as Link and document chaining. They are only available when working with a document on QlikView Server and only to authenticated users.
Note: If you make changes to the data model, existing bookmarks may stop working, even if you retain the same field names. For example, enabling the Always One Selected Value option in the List Boxes properties.
