QlikSense Folders inside Apps

After using qlik sense since 2 years, I found out that I have around 50-100 sheets just in one app on avg depending on the APP. Is quite complicated to have those sheets organized, and will be quite handy if a Folder functionality inside an app is available.

PLEASE!!!

Never have I faced such a use case (an avg of 100 sheets in an app). But yes, this could be a great thing to add in future releases ( mto‌)

We have a Qlik Sense model used by many different groups.  Each has their own perspective of the data so folder functionality to organize the sheets will be important as the user base grows.

@OmarBenSalemI agree with @AdamSantillo. I try to use Qliksense instead of excel as a Business Analyst, if you look at any folder where I have my old jobs using excel you will see many files, and some of them have many sheets. Using a Qlik Sense App has the problem that once your app start to grow in number of sheets, it gets quite unorganized, and one spends quite a lot of time searching that thing you produced 2 or 3 months ago.

From the admin user perspective, this problem grows exponentially as many users face the same problem.

Whenever I have this sort of issue in my apps, I create a few "Table of Contents/Views" sheets. 

Create as many sheets as you'd need folders (One per subject). From those sheets, you can make a button (from the Dashboard extension bundle, QS November 2018) which redirect you to your different sheets.

Starting the names of these sheets with a symbol will guarantee they stay up front in the app and they're the "guide" of the application.

 

This definitely isn't the fastest or best solution, but it's a fix while we wait for folders, I suppose.

Lack of folders at this point is professional negligence. C'mon - everyone who uses QS for more than a year is asking for this? What is the holdup. For such an amazing tool, the lack of GUI and organization on the front end is problematic.

Hi there,

this is a very well know area that we want to improve. We are looking at it as part of a bigger change in the App overview page. And this should be part of the client within all Qlik Sense compositions. I will update the thread here with more details ASAP.

Best regards,

Thomas

Excited to hear this news! I think it will propel Qlik even further forward.  It will make the user experience so much more efficient.  Thanks for addressing and if you want Beta testers or input, please reach out.

@Thomas_Hopp ,   both @AdamSantillo  and I work for the same health care org.  We have a Qlik Luminary on our Qlik Center of Excellence team.   We also could beta test or give your team input .  We have a large app with lots of different user groups as @AdamSantillo  mentioned earlier in this thread.   Our  Qliksense app might be a good test use case for all the new features.
