Creating expressions in Qlik Sense

Hi,

How do I create expressions using the various inbuilt functions in Qlik? In the Add Expression dialog basis, I only see the basic aggregations, and not the various functions (eg for Date Manipulation) that were visible earlier.

I see that intellisense is also not enabled by default, though if type the function, say , MonthName, it works.

Hi,

All are there and try to open the script by selecting fx (add expression) and you can use possible functions as usual and modify  the expression ( make it a set analysis)

Hi,

I had reached the expression box, and i know that I can type in the expression. But am unable to access/see the list of functions available for use, nor do I see intellisense prompting me with the correct expression name as I start typing.

Is this feature no longer available in the current version of Sense?

Hi,

Intellisense may not work now (it will), but the help and all the functions are here.

EDIT: See attached, yo do have some tips when using a function in the expression editor.

Thanks.

Hope the next version is released soon. Sense does look interesting, and a very courageous decision by QlikTech to redesign ground up, a clean break from the original QlikView software. I am sure we can expect rapid improvements in the next few releases. But for those who have spent some time working on QlikView, and were used to capabilities, Sense demands some amount of patience.
