Add a suggestion box to dashboard

Hi All,

Is it possible to add a suggestion box to the dashboard, where other employees would be able to input ideas and improvements?

I have little knowledge of Qlikview, so I apologize for my incompetence.

Thank you,

Kerry

Hi Kerry,

Qlikview is not designed as a capture tool. It's strength is in reporting and analysing data

You could probably achieve the effect that you are after with a Qlikview extension. Extensions, well extend (!), the functionality of the core product.

The below extension (developed by Stefan Walther) would enable you to display a webpage. You could use a Google Form or a service like Survey Monkey or a page internal to your organisation to capture the employee ideas & suggestions.

Improved WebPageViewer QlikView Extension (WebPageViewer2)

I hope this helps!

Add a text box or button with an action that sends an email to the person who will receive the suggestions.

The email thing works. But I like to use a product called bugherd (The simplest bug tracker and client feedback tool | BugHerd) that adds a feedback button into the document. 'm sure there are other similar products as well.

Hi Kerry ,

We dont have a Suggestion Box facility but yes.

We have note sharing facility on the server

Clicking on this note icon, it will open note pane and you can share notes with different employees

Re: Add a suggestion box to dashboard

In the QlikView APIguide is a macro :

rem the variable MyVariable must exist for macro to work!

oldtext = ActiveDocument.Evaluate("MyVariable")

t = ActiveDocument.GetApplication.InputBoxEx("Enter text:",oldtext)

ActiveDocument.Variables("MyVariable").SetContent t,true

In combination with the variable My Variable and a button a textbox opens and you can add comments. Theses are stored in the variable. Not a great solution but it might fit your requirement,
