QlikView documents in Qlik Sense

You can publish a link to a QlikView document in the Qlik Sense hub instead of distributing files by email or to a specific folder location.

You can use this method when you want to share a QlikView document with a named user that is part of the Active Directory user group in both QlikView and Qlik Sense. In QlikView, the administrator must set up distribution to Qlik Sense.
