Don't see "Create new" under "measure" in Qlik sense

I am not seeing  "Create new" under "measure" in Qlik sense. Is this something has to be enabled somehow?

Hi Robert

  • What product are you using, Qlik Sense Desktop or Server? - I believe server.
  • If server, do yo know what your user role is?

This occurs when you attempt to create a sheet from an approved sheet, in other words you are in a stream, accessing an existing app that was already published and NOT in the MY WORK stream.

For example note in the screenshot below, I am creating a sheet from another app, I also don't have create new button. This is because this is an already published app in a stream. IN order to create measures and dimensions in the master items, you need to have access to the app in your own work stream before it is published.

let us know how you do.

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

You have to click on the master items tab and then on the actual box where it says the word measures and then you should see the "create new" button
