Over the past few weeks I've been recording a number of vlogs detailing how I create a general layout in QlikView. This layout has evolved over a number of years and be combining my own ideas with others I've come across whilst acting as a QlikView consultant.
Recently this design was shown to QlikTech as part of a project I was working on, I was very pleased with the feedback which was extremely positive, with comments like "Clean", "Great Use of Space" and "intuitive" being used. I also receive very positive customer feedback when they see this design for the first time.
There are six videos in the series:
- Importing Colours into Variable: http://qlikcentral.com/2014/07/08/importing-colours-into-variables/ The community blog with the excel file can be found here (http://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-6854)
- Starting the design process http://qlikcentral.com/2014/07/23/create-a-new-qlikview-design-layout-1/
- Taking you through the final design from a user perspective http://qlikcentral.com/2014/09/15/create-a-new-qlikview-design-layout-2/
- How I use layers and conditional show / hide to display menus and other functionality http://qlikcentral.com/2014/09/23/layers-and-conditional-show/
- How I miminise the current selections to save space http://qlikcentral.com/2014/10/06/current-selections-within-qlikview-flat-design/
- Finally how I create a data island within the script to add an advanced filter so users can choose any field in the data and make selections without having to use the search Object http://qlikcentral.com/2014/10/08/advanced-filters-in-flat-design/
I hope you will find these videos useful, I've attached the final qvw here for you to see and understand the functionality first hand. The data structure comes from the Qlik Northwind Database example, although I've used it so I could populate filters I don't use it for any calculations or was concerned about the structure here (so basically you can replace it with your own data easily)
Please let me know if you feel more can be vloged about as I'm always on the lookout for new idea's and would also love to hear your comments.
