App overview

When you open an app from the hub, you arrive at the app overview. This is where you see and manage all the content within the app. The content of the main area depends on what category you have selected; sheets, bookmarks or stories.

If the hub has been disabled by your administrator, you arrive at the app overview when Qlik Sense starts up.

You find content that is part of the published app in the upper part of the main area. You cannot add any content to the base part of the published app. Your private content is displayed under My sheets/My bookmarks/My stories. Depending on access rights, you may be allowed to publish your private content so that other users of the app can explore it.

Note: Publishing is not supported in Qlik Sense Desktop, which means that you only see your private content in the hub when using Qlik Sense Desktop.
