Changing the thumbnail of an app

You can replace the default thumbnail of an app with another thumbnail, to make it easier to distinguish between apps in the hub. You can use one of the default images, or an image of your own.

Do the following:

  1. In the app overview, click @ in the app details area.
  2. Click 0 on the default thumbnail.

    The Media library opens.

  3. Click on a folder in the media library, for example In app or Default.
  4. Select the image you want to use as a thumbnail for the app and click Insert.
  5. Click m to stop editing.

The image you selected is now used as a thumbnail for the app.

Tip: The optimal aspect ratio of a thumbnail is 8:5 (width:height).

The following formats are supported: .png, .jpg, .jpeg, and .gif.

For Qlik Sense: You can upload images to the In app folder in the media library. You need to use the Qlik Management Console to upload images to the default folder.

For Qlik Sense Desktop: You can place images in the following folder on your computer: C:\Users\<user>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Content\Default. Images will be available in the default folder in the media library. When moving an app between installations, the images that you use in the app are saved in the qvf file together with the app. When you open the app in a new location, for example Qlik Sense Cloud, the images will be in the In app folder in the media library for the app.

Note: You can only change the thumbnail of an unpublished app.
