Sheet notification when app has reloaded

A recurring request from clients is "can you pop up a dialog to inform currently active users that the app has reloaded with fresh data?)

This feature would probably usually be turned off, but there for sure are use cases where it would be handy. For example, when a user has somehow triggered an update of an app (by means of kicking off an ETL chain in Sense or something).

Or that the user just knows that new data is incoming, and want to be notified right away when it arrives, rather than having to check over and over again.

Sure, we can send a new-data-is-available message by writing a message to a Slack or Teams channel, or sending them an email as last part of the app reload. Would still be useful to show this in-app.

Would it be possible to add a sheet notification that fires when the app has reloaded, with configurable text shown to the user? And an expression enable/disable, so we could even just enable it for some users...

Hi @mountaindude , thank you very much for your idea.
We have introduced notifications to Qlik Sense, available in the Hub, on the SaaS editions of Qlik Sense.
Our roadmap includes extending the notification center to the client as well, providing an environment to notify users of important events, such as the one you mentioned. 

Status changed to: Open - On Roadmap
