We want to make sure we are building the best possible reporting extension for you.
The Mail & Deploy roadmap is a snapshot. It shows you what we are working on and what we plan to roll out in the next 3 to 6 months. This helps us open up a practical dialogue. We want to connect with you, our customers, leads and partners. And we want to know more about what you want and need without giving away any top-secret details.
We want to hear what you do and do not like. We want to gather your feedback so that we can prioritise what is most important and better shape our product.
In the future, we are aiming to add even more functionality to Mail & Deploy. So if you have any feedback, questions or ideas, let us know. Write us at email@example.com
- Mail & Deploy goes Cloud
With the introduction of Mail & Deploy SaaS, we will offer our customers a fully cloud-ready SaaS solution that enables easy reporting in the cloud. Mail & Deploy SaaS offers Qlik® users the full range of functions of the classic on-premise solution, but Mail & Deploy takes over the maintenance work in terms of hosting and updates.
- Release Version 3.2
Our team developed multiple new features for this upcoming release. We think there is something new and beneficial for everyone. Stayed tuned.
- Better documentation, tutorials, and videos
We are currently recording videos and tutorials to make life easier for those who are just starting with Mail & Deploy. And we are already working on better documentation. For this reason, we switched to a new documentation editing software and we will publish it in the near future.
- New Self Service Extension Features
In the first half of 2022 we have planned to release a new version of the self-service extension which also allows you to use section access. It will automatically make use of the section access of the user that requests the report through the extension. And we will add alerting functionality to the extension.
- Continued support of new Qlik® visualizations
Furthermore, we will also further continue the support of Qlik vizualistiations and extensions. We are currently working on the implementation of TRUECHART in version 3 and we are almost every week adding additional visualizations that we find to be useful or extensions that you request to be included and supported by Mail & Deploy.
- Command-line Interface
We will also release a command-line interface. That is for those of you who want to use the API of Mail & Deploy and who do not want to write complicated HTTP requests with JSON or any other interfaces (e.g. for simple tasks like executing a task at the end of a Qlik Sense® load script). We will provide a command-line tool that you can start simply by giving it the command line parameter like, for example, the name of the task you want to execute. So you can quickly integrate Mail & Deploy functionality in your existing systems.
- Release of Version 3.5
For Q4 2022, we are planning to at least release a preview version of version 3.5. For this version, we are going for an evolution instead of revolution approach. There will not be any migration involved. It will be an in-place update, but it will be completely based on the new .NET 6 platform. This means that Mail & Deploy can run on Linux and on macOS in addition to Windows.
We will have a brand new self-service extension in version 3.5. It will not only support requesting a report from the extension from within Qlik Sense® but also give the user the ability to design reports from within Qlik Sense®. You can then move objects to a page and create PDF files or Microsoft Powerpoint files from it.
In addition, we will do an API overhaul to make it more performant and more compliant with current web standards.
