How do I create a default filter selection in QlikSense?

-Rookie Question

Hi,

How do I set a filter to automatically be set to a specific selection by default?

For example:
I would like this filter selection to be selected by default. (image below)

In QlikView this could be configured in the properties settings, however I'm now using QlikSense and I can't figure out how to do it. I'm assuming it'll be done with set analysis. If this is the case (rookie question) where do I put the set analysis expression?

TIA.

You can do that by using setting variable with required values and giving user buttons selection to choose one from them.

extension can be used for this is Qlik Branch

2nd approach can be using another extension which will allow you to select default value.

If you have field generated in load script with required value then Qlik Branch

I hope it is helpful.

I'm having the same issue here. I would like a dashboard set by default to the last 30 days (A flag I created) but also allow people to change that filter to look at last 60, 90.....

I'm not seeing any way to do this now in the application or on the community.

Re: How do I create a default filter selection in QlikSense?

Hello Ben,

I had the same issue last week, I fixed that like this :

I used the GetCurrentSelections() function which returns the current selection, for more details you can check : https://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/12.0/Subsystems/Client/Content/ChartFunctions/FieldFunctions/ge...

You can try something like this :

if(GetCurrentSelections() like '*Rights/Options/Warrants*','No','Yes')

Re: How do I create a default filter selection in QlikSense?

the question was about Qlik Sense not about Qlik View.

At the moment there is still NO SOLUTION for Qlik Sense Cloud.

Only for Desktop / Enterprise where you can apply extensions.
