Current Selection while export data

Like Qlik View, If I export data from App, I have to know what selection active are

I second this suggestion.  It is crucial that the context is exported as well as the numbers. 

 

In a mashup, we managed to solved this in a cumbersome way, by adding new columns for all the fields with a selection, in a duplicate of the chart's hypercube definition.  It works when exporting to Excel, but is quite a bit of extra overhead that may or may not break at each upgrade.

For reference, this request was included in another idea from 2018: https://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-Sense-Ideas/Show-applied-selections-in-Snapshot-library-and-data-.... This idea will stay open, even though it is a duplicate.

This is a very important requirement for our stakeholders. It was standard behavior in our QlikView apps. When we migrated to Qlik Sense this functionality was not available and is the biggest complaint from our users.

Thank you all for your feedback on ways to improve our product. While this is something we understand would be important to provide more context to exported files, this is not in our short-term roadmap.
Please continue to show your support for this idea.

I second that this suggestion and actually made the same suggestion, but it has been closed due to being a duplicate request. Here is my original request:

I would like to suggest that active filter selections are included when doing an "Export data" of a visualization (table, chart or other type) in Qlik Sense.

This will clearly help every user exporting data, as they will know what they have exported / are looking at in Excel.

In my opinion, this is such a basic feature, that I do not understand that it is not already included in Qlik Sense.

+1 from me - this is a consistent requirement from our users as well. An export is not useful/reliable if it does not contain selections context.
