Filter a dimension every time App is opened

How can I set a filter automatically ever time an app is opened?

For example I have a year field with values 2010 through 2017. When the app is opened I want 2017 selected by default.

Thanks

Phil

Re: Filter a dimension every time App is opened

Hi Philip,

in Qlik Sense it is not possible, as alternative you can use extensions but not all extensions work properly in Qlik Sense,

i tried to solve this problem and i recieved a lot suggestion, but i didnt find a solution ( I know what do you mean: in Qlik View 11: you can solve this problem with TriggersSmiley Surprisedn open > Value: Year > String; 2017.and if you open and close your app, and you have always preselected value)

i hope that helps you to save your time and think about another alternative

Omar, thanks for the reply. Was looking for a solution without installing extensions.

Good to know that it can be done with the button and bookmark.
