Extension Setup

The WebOfWork Commentary extension is a downloadable extension that you import just like any other extension in Qlik Sense. Import it via the extension manager in the QMC on Qlik Sense Server or unzip into your extension folder in Qlik Sense Desktop.

How To Use

Step 1 - Download and drop the extension into your Qlik Sense app.

Navigate to the About section, by default it is using the WebOfWork writeback service. Don't worry it is free! If your extension is not already logged in then you can verify the extension using your WebOfWork account to login.

Step 2 - Configure the extension

The extension works pretty much out the box. You have 3 options for different ways to allow communication within your Qlik Sense application.

  1. Selections - Comments will be stored against the current app selections.
  2. Application - Comments will be stored in one comment stream for the entire application. (So you can show comments in multiple places in the same app).
  3. Object Id - Create a stand alone commentary box for a specific object Id so you can add multiple unique commentary boxes within a Qlik Sense App.


Where is my data stored?

Data is stored in the WebOfWork Writeback service. The extension is authorised as the user who downloaded the application.

Can I use this inside an enterprise environment?

Yes! You can install the extension in the normal way through the QMC. If you want the writeback service installed locally on site for data storage purposes please contact
