Vizlib Templates - Introduction

Vizlib Templates are pre-designed charts which have been designed to help you create and apply your own styling with just a few clicks.  


The main objective for Vizlib Templates is to help generate a consistent, standardized look for Qlik Sense data visualisations which can be aligned with your company design and branding system. You can create and share templates with your entire organisation, speeding up development and maintaining visual standards across your Qlik Sense apps. 

Working with Vizlib Templates

All of your template information and settings are held in the Templates section of the Vizlib User Portal (Figure 1). The Explore pages contain any available Vizlib templates and Demo apps, and in Your templates, you can view the Company templates you've created for your organization and a list of the Users who can work with Vizlib Templates.

Creating and Saving Templates

You can create templates in the Qlik Sense hub when you're working with extensions, and make changes as you go along. Once you've got the look and feel you want, you can save the template and publish it for other users to apply. You can find a full guide on creating and saving templates in our article here

Managing Templates 

Vizlib Templates have two distinct states - Published and Unpublished

  • Published templates are available in your organisation’s shared space and can be accessed by the named users in your team.
  • Unpublished templates are your personal templates and can only be accessed by you and your organization’s Vizlib admin.

In the user portal, you can publish or unpublish a template, set the template as a default, edit the template name and delete the template. You can also manage the list of Users who can view any of your published templates. You can find out more about managing templates in our article here

Templates in Offline Installations

If you're working with Vizlib extensions as part of an Offline installation (where the Qlik Sense Enterprise Server has no internet connection), working with templates is still possible. However, there are some other steps you'll need to follow. 

  • Log into the Vizlib User Portal, click on your name in the top right of the screen, then select Account management (Figure 1). 
  • Select Inject templates in offline extensions and you'll be able to download any published templates as part of the offline extension bundle.

Note on Creating Templates: Offline users will still need to use an Online version of the extension they're working with to create the template and publish it using a Qlik Sense development server which has internet access. It is not possible to publish templates via Qlik Sense desktop.
