Qliksense Date filter

Hi, 

I have 3 tables that I am loading into Qliksense and create one visualization object for each table. In all 3 tables I have different date columns, but I want to create a date filter in Qliksense so I can see simultaneous on all 3 visualizations data for the same period. 

Example: I want to see data for 2022-03-01 and I want all visualizations to contain data for that period, but only use one filter(column). 

How can I achieve that?

You should rename the 3 date fields as the same field name. If more dimensions are shared you should concatenate the 3 tables.

Something like this

Table:

load date1 as date

from table1;

concatenate(Table)

load date2 as date

from table2;

concatenate(Table)

load date3 as date

from table3;

We would need more information in order to be available to help you. Maybe a sample app will do the trick.

Hi, 

I am renaming all fields with the same but then Synthetic keys are created. 

I have the following tables: 

 

Table1: 

Load

ID

,Date

,Month//Month is created before from date and it has this format: 2022 03

,Column1

,Column 2

FROM qvd1

Load 

ID

,Date

,Month

,ColumnA

,ColumnB 

FROM qvd2

Table3:

LOAD 

ID_2

,Date

,Month

,ColumnX

,ColumnY

FROM qvd3

 

In the interface I want to use Date and Month as filters to work across all objects(I have multiple charts and each of them is loaded from another qvd). If I keep this load, synthetic keys are created
