Keeping Tabs on Qlik Cloud Reporting

It’s here! Tabular Reporting in Qlik Cloud

It's summer of 1997, and I’m seven years old. I’ve just finished typing up my last homework assignment of the year, and a few loud keyboard taps later, it’s saved to a floppy disk, ready for printing at the school library. I grab my headphones and press play on my Walkman: Fleetwood Mac – Rumors. It’s an old tape that belonged to my dad, and despite my favorite musician of all time, Stevie Nicks, joining their band almost 16 years before I was born, their otherworldly and soulful vocal harmonies never fail to bring me joy.

We all have memories like this. Whether it was your first computer, or that feeling when you first heard the dial-up tone for internet, certain technologies have a special place in our hearts and for many Qlik Customers those technologies include Excel and NPrinting.

At the early beginning, Vizubi NPrinting, was the printing (and exporting to Excel) module of a bigger product called Nuvola (the Italian word for cloud). The NPrinting code was extracted and translated to English to be sold worldwide via internet.

Beyond look and feel, the capabilities and familiarity associated with our favorite tech can usher in a powerful sense of nostalgia.

Here is our tribute to nostalgia, an appreciation of marrying the past with the present driving entirely new innovations…

Tabular Reporting available in Qlik Cloud Analytics.

The holidays came early for many Qlik users when Qlik launched Tabular Reporting in December, bringing a beloved QlikView NPrinting feature to the cloud.

Tabular reporting capabilities have been a fundamental aspect of Qlik’s reporting software dating back to QlikView. At its core, it enables users to organize and share data with stakeholders in structured table formats. There’s a reason people still love and use Excel.

While Tabular Reporting functionality has evolved over time, with Qlik continuously refining and improving the user experience, this beloved feature was originally left out of the reporting capabilities of Qlik Cloud Analytics. Until now…

So — what exactly is Tabular Reporting with Qlik Cloud? What can it be used for? What is the state of this technology today? Let’s get into it.

Customers now have the capability to conquer those ever-present, report distribution requirements. Whether you need paginated tables of sales/transactional data or repeated sheets of departmental analysis directly within an application in Qlik Cloud, we got you…

With the introduction of Tabular Reporting, report developers can unleash their creativity, crafting tailor-made, intricately detailed XLS or PDF documents infused with Qlik data and visualizations.

Highlights of Tabular Reporting:

  • Create dynamic tabular report template definition with data and visualizations from a Qlik Sense App from the familiarity of Microsoft Office 365 using Add-in technology.

  • Define report templates of Qlik data and visualizations and produce reports in PDF and Excel.

  • Share branded, presentation ready burst reports with internal and external stakeholders, with the self-service subscription ability to set up alerts.

  • Manage in app distribution lists to support burst distribution to any internal or external stakeholder.

  • Control with governed report task control from within an integrated report preparation experience.

And the cherry on top?

Governed Report Tasks swoop in to burst reports to every corner of your distribution universe. Used for external stakeholder requirements, compliance agency reports and customers, allowing people without a license to consume insights generated by Qlik Cloud. Further solidifying the Qlik Cloud platform as the go-to source for operational decisions, customer communications, and beyond!

Qlik reporting capabilities will continue to expand with new features and functions that enhance collaboration and enables users to leverage the insights derived from reports across their organizations.

If you are hungry to learn how to use these collaborative and tabular reporting features and want an in-person, hands-on workshop then you are in luck. Come out to Orlando for Qlik Connect in June. You will even get a sneak-peak into future releases during our roadmap sessions.

And there you have it—your glimpse into the subtle yet significant addition of Tabular Reporting in Qlik Cloud.

So why wait? Pour yourself a cup of coffee, fire up your browser, and experience the features you have been longing for. Your data — and your stakeholders — will thank you.
