This month, we’re excited to announce a new customization feature for Qlik Sense Cloud Business users! You can now upload your own custom themes to your Qlik Sense Cloud Business workspace, and create and publish apps that reflect your own specific style requirements. For example, you can now apply a preferred color palette or your brand guidelines to apps.
To create your own custom theme, you’ll need to compile a compressed zip folder with three key components:
- A definition (QEXT) file
- A main JSON file
- Any additional assets that support the theme as needed (i.e. CSS files)
Once you’ve created the folder, you can upload it to the new Themes section in the settings area of Qlik Sense Cloud Business. Once uploaded, the theme will then appear in the App Theme drop-down in the App Options menu. Don’t forget, you can also reference this list to apply any of the default themes available to all Qlik Sense Cloud users – Sense Classic, Sense Breeze, and Sense Focus.
Curious about what Google and Super Mario themes look like in Qlik Sense? Watch the video below to see how Mike Tarallo uses those examples to highlight everything you need to know to set up custom themes.
We’ve attached the Google theme files Mike uses in his demonstration to this blog so that you can try uploading custom themes on your own.
Finally, check out some of the great resources below – including our online help documentation and other Qlik Community blogs – for more details on how to create custom themes.
