Basically, the idea is to create a repository for all formulas used in Qlik Sense Non-published apps. Not just master items, but I won't be surprised if it should start there from UI standpoint.
Inspiration: QlikView had this Expression Repository which you can use to export and search on top of all expressions used in the app.
The problem: We need to do bulk search and update formulas, so we want to be able to find where a certain field, measure, variable or set expression is used. Even bulk update of formatting.
Solution 1 (should be easy): Create "Bulk Explore" functionalities for each of the Master Items sections to filter among all the expressions, dimensions, extensions, visualizations based on their name, values, tags or descriptions. ++ Export to excel
Solution 2 (a bit more nasty): Create a "Bulk Explore" that spans a table with all the formulas used explaining if it's used in a Variable, Master Measure, Master Dimension, Custom Dimension, Expression, Color, Range, etc, etc, value. ++ Export to excel
Solution 3 (must be the nastiest): Solution 2 + Bulk update functionality. Basically Find/Replace.
I hope I'm not duplicating anyone's idea. But even if so, let's make this hot!
It was quite heavily used in QlikView.
