What is a QVF file?

A QVF file is an app created by Qlik Sense Desktop, an analytics program used to create personalized, interactive reports and data visualizations. It contains one or more visualizations of data, such as charts, maps, tables, and plots. QVF files also include settings that configure the appearance of the visualizations.

QVF files are used to store visualizations of data, such as sales numbers or personal information. However, you will most likely only see the actual QVF file when sharing your data visualization app with another Qlik Sense Desktop user. They are often shared as an email attachment or uploaded to the cloud but it is important to note that QVF files often become large in size, making them difficult to attach to an email.
