Configure Mobile Deep Linking for Qlik Sense

Deep link is a type of link that sends users directly to a mobile app instead of a website or store. It is used to send users straight to specific in-app locations, saving users time and energy locating a particular page themselves – significantly improving the user experience.

Metric Insights supports deep linking for Qlik Sense. A deep link can be accessed from the Action block of the External Report Viewer.

The example below shows how to configure deep linking on iOS but the instructions for Android are essentially the same.
