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 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.


Fully customizable, Vizlib Writeback Table lets you edit Qlik dimensions, measures and fields, and add new data using a wide variety of data types. It's also incredibly quick to create an app, as you can see from the video guide here. You can also find a demo app in the product page for Vizlib Collaboration in our user portal or the Demo apps gallery on the Vizlib site.
