Use different alternate state for every sheet.

Did you ask about the fields value selection or what can you elaborate with an example.

Hi Anand,

In Qlik View, there are option to choose from menu to clear the section to migrate around the tabs. 

Now in Qlik Sense ( my new application has 4 tabs ). When I move from one tab to another, the previous selection are still reflected in the new tab that I move currently.

How can I clear my previous selection?

Re: How not to link the selections between sheets

In QlikSense and QlikView there is a single data model that is common to the whole application regardless of how many charts or sheets the application has.

Changing form one sheet to another, you are still accessing the same data model, hence the selections remain in place unless you click on clear. This is the way Qlik works!

Hello Khin, Thanks for your question.

Just a thought - if there are chart objects in other sheets that you want displayed WITHOUT the current selections being considered - you could use Set Analysis to define the measure in those charts to ignore the selections, that way the object will reflect the measure for the specific set of data that you define.

You can learn more about Set Analysis here:

Re: How not to link the selections between sheets

In the qlikview data model you "can't" do this because you have all relationed with the same fields (if you did right the relations between the tables)

But you can do in the same app different fact tables with dimension tables and with a different calendar without relation with the other tables.

And because you will have tables without relationship with the others, you can do different sheets with different kind of information, without relation with the other sheets.

This isn't "wrong" but you should be careful with this because you aren't doing the normal qlikview model

You could use set analysis, but i think it wasn't what you asked.
