Vizlib Writeback Table - Introduction



Read-only dashboards are a thing of the past. With Vizlib Writeback Table, you can easily edit, update and comment on data points or entire rows directly in your dashboards, while remaining in the analysis flow. It’s a like a version of spreadsheets in Qlik Sense, but a lot more powerful, as it lets you correct your data, insert new information, adjust numbers and create new data segmentations.
