Can QlikSense create box and whisker plot

I am trying to create a box plot in QS but can't find the option to do it.

Understand that QV does have this feature, how about QS?

Re: Can QlikSense create box and whisker plot

Hi

There is not a BoxPlot available in QlikSense standard package.

I have not yet seen an extension, but it should be fairly easy to make this extension based on the example from d3js.

Hello Benson,

As stated, you can download the Box Plot extension object from our Qlik Branch site located here: http://branch.qlik.com/projects/showthread.php?379-Sense-Boxplot

If you are new to using Extension Objects and Qlik Branch I recommend you check out this video:

Qlik Sense - Introduction to Extensions (video)

I also attached the extension - with the sample app and data.

Please mark the appropriate replies as helpful / correct so our team and other members know that your question(s) has been answered to your satisfaction.

Sense Boxplot


The boxplot is a great way to visualize the shape of data sets using statistical methods to find and depict range, median, outliers, and quartile-based variability/whiskers. Here's a good explanation of it from Wikipedia.

Data


The way the data is brought in is only a tiny bit unusual. We want all of the numeric values with NO AGGREGATION so you actually want to add 2 dimensions - first dimension is the actual dimension (in the example provided it's a Quarter, so Q1, Q2, etc). Second dimension is the set of numeric values you want the chart to crunch on, in the example provided it's Revenue.

In order to be able to replicate exactly what Bostock did and see they match, I am ingesting his sample CSV in the app provided; However, because his csv is pivoted, I used a crosstable function in the loadscript to unpivot and get the data in a way we normally consume it.

Hello Dewa,

Normally - you would contact the developer in the comments section on branch at the location of the project: http://branch.qlik.com/#!/project/56728f52d1e497241ae697f3 - but I know Chris and he is a colleague and friend. I will reach out to him to see if he can assist.
