Export to New Application

It is possible to export the current state of a selected data set to a new application. In the new application, master items will be created from your dimension and measures. In Qlik Sense Enterprise the user need to have security rights to create an app for the feature to work. For June 2018 and later releases the new app will open in Generate Insights mode that suggest charts based on the data. 

Use these two steps to create a new app based on the data in your Custom Report.

1. Right-click and select export to new app (Figure 7). Click to open the new app which is now generated.

2. Enable Generate Insights (Figure 8) and select the visualizations you would like to use with the data.

Note that the feature requires that the user has access and license to create a new application and edit it.

Export Object to New Sheet

To further develop an object it is possible to export any object created inside the Custom Report to a new object on a new sheet (Figure 9). 

Note: This does required developer privileges and a professional license in Qlik Sense. Simply use the context-menu and choose Export\Export object to new sheet.

It is also possible to add the table as a master item (Figure 10). Click the checkbox and give the master item a proper name. The master item will be created and the new object will be linked to the master item when created on the new sheet.
