Most common Questions asked about LogiExport, an Extension Designed to Export Data from QlikSense to Xlsx Files
We recognize the need to export data from QlikSense to Excel as an essential part of the daily work method of many. Managers want to distribute daily, sometimes hourly, data from the QS to decision-makers and stakeholders. Even though some alternative tools and software can help disseminate information, the preferred means of distribution remains and will be Microsoft Excel, as it is easy to use, enables adding formulas in the end file, and particularly because it is the most common analysis tool among analysts and managers.
In fact, the current data export from QS to Xlsx ends in a raw Excel file. The data is being extracted while losing its template, context, variables, and design set by the user. Quite a bit of manual work is required on the exported Xlsx file. This includes interpretation and arrangement of the data. Such work, especially done in a short time, is prone to human error that can be fatal in the world of calculations and predictions.
