Exporting a Vizlib Pivot Table - Qlik SaaS

Pivot Table exports from Qlik SaaS

Role permissions to set the export type

You must have a Designer role to set the export type in Qlik Sense and Qlik SaaS. Users cannot change how their data are exported when clicking on the 'Export type for icon'.


Qlik does not allow Third-party extensions to be exported to images and PDF; please read the Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS article for more details. 

Vizlib customized exports are available in some extensions, but the native image export functionality of Qlik Sense is incompatible with Qlik SaaS extensions. This limitation also affects the ability to use Stories in SaaS since they use the same functionality.

Please note:  Vizlib extensions (Library, Gantt, Finance, Collaboration) support the Qlik native export to Excel.
