As part of the relaunch of QlikCommunity this Spring, we touted a new capability called Ideas. A facility where QlikCommunity participants can share ideas for product enhancements, see the suggestions of others, add views and indicate support by casting a supporting (or descenting) vote. As part of that launch we are busy seeding the QlikCommunity database with the content generated over the last couple of years by contributors in the SalesForce Portal. Today we are closing the SalesForce Idea portal to any new contributions (including votes and comments) as we aim to complete the data transition into QlikCommunity. For this SFDC based content we are preserving all names, votes, comments and ensuring its attributed correctly to your QlikCommunity profile.
The QlikCommunity Ideas portal will be rolled out later this summer and will be open to everyone who is a registered QlikCommunity user. We think you'll find a lot of energy and kindred spirits for your own suggestions. We'll be announcing and demo'ing the capabilities as we near the roll out so stay tuned. And thanks for all of the great contributions to date.

Today we have posted Service Release 3 (SR3) for QlikView 10 to our download site. As well as updates to address bugs, this service release includes support for QlikView on Android based tablets, expanding deployment options for mobile clients. As with our recent announcement of our browser based support on iPads, QlikView on Android based tablets is via the browser and QlikView AJAX client. This allows your QlikViews to be used on both desktop and mobile browsers across a wider array of devices.
Full detail of the fixes and updates included in 10SR3 can be found in the attached release notes and bug list QVW

We are pleased to confirm that the latest Update build for version 9 SR7 is now available on our download site http://global.qlik.com/download/.
An Update is a build which rolls together several bug fixes (or patch builds) in to an official release which replaces the previous Update for version 9, build 9.0.7778. An Update is subject to basic regression testing on the code changes implemented.
The release notes attached detail the fixes implemented in this release. Thank you for choosing QlikView!

You can find the announcement about this new feature of QlikCommunity and details of how to use it in this Community Corner post 'QlikCommunity Ideas'. Our great Community Manager, Jason Long, has even put together a snappy video to walk you thru the steps of creating an Idea and how to add your thoughts to someone else's idea. For us on the Product Management side we are excited that this is a single location for all Community members to contribute Ideas and thoughts on those of others. We'll respond where appropriate and look to watch trends and thoughts as we go into product planning cycles.
But Ideas is about generating enhancement suggestions using the collective voice of the community. Some Ideas will take off and gain broad attention and support. Others may face demotion. In the case of the latter, do not be discouraged. What may start off as one Idea may spawn other insights and perspectives that you may not have originally had.
Please remember that this Ideas area of QlikCommunity is for suggesting product improvements and not for requesting helping in solving a particular business problem with QlikView. It is quite likely that in solving a problem with your current version of QlikView that you can generate an Idea to simplify the current approach. Give your community members examples of why and how your Idea can be put to good use. Simple statements such as 'Add a flag to turn off feature XYZ' will not gain much support if your fellow community members dont see the value or application of the Idea.
For those of you who submitted enhancement requests thru the Feature Request form in the old QlikCommunity, note that we have not imported those into Ideas. As direct Community Member to Product Manager entries you may have formatted/worded them in a way that was not necessarily suited to viewing in Ideas. Similarly we've not brought entries from 3rd party community sites, such as LinkedIn, into this site. But we do have them in our back end system. Our intention is to keep and manage these requests with the input from QlikCommunity Ideas as we go forward.
OK. So 'Ready-Steady-Go!' ... there are over 800 Ideas already out there, so plenty to peruse, comment and vote on (we've preserved all of the submission & voting records of those who were able to participate in the SalesForce Ideas portal).
Happy Idea-er-ing ()

We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused and assure you that we are working hard at preventing these defects slipping through.
Thank you for using QlikView.

Hello and welcome to the QlikView Support Updates blog. This entry provides important information about End of Support for QlikView Software versions.
Currently Supported Versions of QlikView
Major Version Support Policy
QlikView provides support for a major version of the software for a minimum of 2 years from the date that major version is replaced by the next major version. For example, version 9 was replaced by version 10 in October 2010. Version 9 support therefore expires 2 years after that, in October 2012.

We are almost ready to launch the new version of QlikCommunity! We invited many of our top users to test and evaluate the new system, and we are now ready to start the migration to the new site. This is a large undertaking, and it will involve a lot of changes to the current site. Here's what you can expect:
We thank you for your patience as we make this transition, and we look forward to working with you on this exciting new chapter for QlikCommunity!
Hey everyone! We are only a month away from celebrating two years since the new QlikCommunity site went live...and what a two years it has been! We now have a great cadre of QlikView experts answering questions, sharing tips & tricks, and helping new QlikView users get started.
We have been listening to your requests for improvements and new functionality, and we are proud to announce that we are moving to a new platform that will deliver on all the top requested features! We have been working for a couple of months behind the scenes, and we are getting the new system ready for testing very soon. Some of the most requested (and soon to be delivered) features are:
One more important note: All QlikCommunity content will be migrated to the new site! Our members have created a great repository of information over the last few years, and we will be moving over all content (including attachments) to the new site.
You will begin to see some notices about the move over the next couple of weeks, and we will announce the launch of the new site as soon as testing is completed. We are extremely excited about this update, and we know you will be too!
This is just a friendly reminder that support for QlikView version 8.X will expire at the end of May 2011.
Version 8.0 was first shipped in May 2007, with version 8.20 released in November 2007 and version 8.50 released in June 2008. QlikTech's current support policy is to provide support for a major version for 2 years after it is replaced by the next major version. With version 9 coming out in May 2009 the clock started ticking on version 8 support, and this will run out soon.
You can download the installation files for version 9 or 10 from our download site. We strongly recommend that you follow industry best practices when changing or upgrading any software!
Version 8 has been a fantastic tool. We will be sorry to close this chapter of QlikView history and would like to thank our customers for all their support.
As we move towards more frequent releases of version updates, QlikTech R&D have decided to release an Update for version 10 SR1 for QlikView Desktop. The build number for this release is 10.00.8815.
All releases are incremental and will include all code changes implemented after the previous Service Release. However the release and testing cycle differs between the different types of releases:
The element of risk when using the different types of releases will differ. Customer Patches by their nature have a greater chance of unintended issues than Updates and the least risk applies to using a Service Release.
This "Update" only affects QlikView Desktop. If you have experienced any of the problems below and would like a copy of this release, please log a case through the Customer Portal or Partner Portal, respectively.
Support during Christmas and New Year period:
As the Christmas and New Year holidays fall over a Saturday and Sunday, support services to non-Premium users will to a large degree be unaffected as non-Premium support is not available over Saturday and Sunday. Premium support will continue as normal.
Please note that non-Premium support will not be available on 24 December and 31 December in the following markets:
Nordics, United States and International Markets
We would like to thank our customers and partners and wish everyone a prosperous new year!

You will find many more new features in QlikView 10 that you can introduce to your implementation over time. Attached to this post are the full set of release notes so that you can begin considering your migration.
Finally we'd like to thank all of you who over the last 6 months have found the time in your busy schedule to participate in our QlikView 10 Beta Program. This has been our longest and most successful beta program. We hope that the insight and practical experience that you gained during this time has helped you in your planning for Version 10. Your participation has been of great value to us and we appreciate the fact that you were able to take time from your crowded day to test the product and contribute via the Beta Community. If you have any comments about future beta programs, we'd love to hear about them
