Hey guys - it's What's New in Qlik Sense time and I have prepared a brief video to share some of the awesome highlights in our next release Qlik Sense April 2018.

 

 

Highlights include:

 

Assisted data visualization with Qlik Sense chart suggestions / recommendations

Qlik Sense recommendations make it easier to create a visualization by allowing you to simply drag and drop fields onto your sheets. Chart suggestions are created using the Cognitive Engine in Qlik, which leverages insights from the data loaded and combines them with best practices for data visualization.

 

NEW Grid Size control

Now with the creation of a new sheet, the application author can choose between 3 grid sizes - small, medium and large.

 

Maps visualizations improvements

Qlik Sense April 2018 features significant improvements to the built-in maps visualization:

  • Support for multiple layers.
  • Labels for point layers and area layers.
  • Quick look up of countries, divisions, cities, postal code areas.
  • Circle select with distance measure.
  • Drill down support.
  • Layer control, zoom limit and draw order.
  • English or local name in the background map.

 

Publishing an app from the hub

In Qlik Sense April 2018 you can publish an app that you have created to any stream for which you have publish access. If you have published an app to a stream, you can move your app between the streams for which you have permission to publish.

 

Qlik Geocoding
A new subscription service part of the Qlik GeoAnalytics product package, that allows you to coordinate geo lookups all the way down to the street level.

 

Also included:

 

Keyboard navigation support for Qlik Sense hub

To improve accessibility, Qlik Sense hub now supports keyboard navigation and shortcuts.

 

Linking Qlik Sense Mobile to third-party applications

Qlik Sense Mobile can now interact with third party mobile applications through a custom generated URL (deep link). The link can be embedded within the third party mobile application, with appropriate selections and filters. Clicking the link opens the app in Qlik Sense Mobile with the filters and selections that were applied during original presentation. As a result, user experience is improved and context is provided when interacting with the app.

 

Enable anonymous users to export data

From Qlik Sense April 2018 anonymous users can print and export data.
