Create new extension and implement mathematical method in the template

Hi Guys,

I desperately need your help. I'm new to Qlik Sense Desktop and I'm over-demanding with the task.
I need to create a new extension in Dev Hub.
It has to implement in a template (e.g., chart template) a mathematical method (e.g., turnover - cost = profit). Is that possible ?
Give examples where you can compare it.
I look forward to your answers

Best regards
Soner

Re: Create new extension and implement mathematical method in the template

If you need to calculate profit by subtracting cost from turnover you have a very straightforward standard chart you can create in Qlik Sense.

If you have a table of date, cost and turnover:

1. Create a line chart

2. add date as a dimension

3. add the expression Sum(turnover-cost) as a measure.Add the label profit to this expression.

Be sure to use the same casing for the fields all the time since Qlik Sense is case sensitive. For example Turnover will not be the same as turnover.
