What’s new in QlikView May 2021?

Here are some of the highlights of the new and updated features of QlikView.

Changed PDF printer driver

QlikView Publisher will by default use Microsoft Print to PDF. The previous PDF driver PDF-XChange 3.0 has been removed from QlikView installations.

Improved Access Point

The Access Point has been visually improved.

Improved bookmark handling

Improved Section Access

The logic in Section Access has been tweaked so that it now is possible to use the same Section Access in both QlikView and Qlik Sense, including SaaS editions. The changes affect the fields SERIAL and USER.EMAIL.

Existing Section Access tables should work unchanged, unless you already have a field called USER.EMAIL. In such a case, you need to review your authorization table.

QVF support

Support for the QVF file format has been introduced. It is now possible to open and save files in the QVF format. There are however still some limitations, e.g. input fields and macros are not supported; QVF files cannot be reloaded on a QlikView Server.

Further, there is not yet any cross-compatibility between QlikView QVF files and Qlik Sense QVF files.
