## Re: How to add lineal trend in Qlik sense

Hi Jon, thanks for your question. As you know a lot of goodness has come out over the years, including enhancements to visualizations. As of yet I am not aware of any additional feature to allow this with just a checkbox, I did reach out to our R&D team though. I will update you here when I hear back form them.

## Re: How to add lineal trend in Qlik sense

Hi Jon - it is something that is on the Radar, but it does not have a timeframe. It is safe to say that it won't be happening this year though. However as in this discussion thread, it is still possible with the function.

## Re: How to add lineal trend in Qlik sense

Is there a way someone could mock up/share a simple diagonal trend line formula(e)/chart in Sense 3.01 and a second one that would take into consideration the x/y relationship

Essentially looking for visible outliers to the simple trends.

Essentially line 1 - sample plot points (0,0) and (100,100) - a pure diagonal.   I'm not familiar with the lineref function and would love to see a simple example - where the line would run through aggregation of x and the aggregation of y when those values be equal.

Line 2 -  a little more sophisticated - but (theoretical example plot points)

0,0

100,145

100,100

150,305

200,400

250,510

the trend line would run through the average slope (straight line) of the x/y combinations and the 100,100 plot would be most divergent from the average trend line and the others essentially on or near that line?

Last question - is there a way to get both lines to appear in the same chart - an 'equivalency' line as well as the 'actual average' trend line?

Many thanks

Hi Jon - I will seem if one of our experts can take a look - jpe‌ - is there a simple trick in Qlik Sense with a script function to create a simple diagonal trend line? See comment above this one.

Thanks

Mike

Jon i scanned some emails from some internal colleagues . One person Tomahiro appears to have a couple of solutions. See how these work .The 2nd ones are extensions based.

I think the simplest way is using Combo chart with linear regression functions like linest_m().

[How to add lineal trend in Qlik sense]

and, if you need a simple extension, I developed sample implementation with d3.js, dimple.js and regression.js. Please take a look at my tweet.

Hey this is cool functionality. Did u make available on branch or could you post the extension files?

Hi mto

It doesn't seem to be working if the dimensions has non-numeric values. In my case, its the month name(Jan, Feb, Mar etc). Can you confirm this please.

Unfortunately I couldn't get this to work for me- I put it down a while ago and now just coming back around to it.

Perhaps as Matt noted is there an app with an embedded example of these functions/syntax in 'action' that we might be able to scrutinize?

Mike T - any update on which release version (was hoping it would have been in 3.2 (which is why I didn't come back to this until now))?

Thanks

Hi nareshguntur

I had the same problem. I wanted to do it over weeks in a year (WeekYear) but you can define numeric values of months in the expression and then use month names as the dimension value.
