Re: How to set one value always selected in Qliksense

Hey Kaushik,

I tried using 'Default Selection extension' object from QlikBranch but it does not works. Pls find image1 as attached and advice.

Check for some more extension.

While choosing extension, see which one is recently updated.

Regards,

Hi Nikhil,

The way i use to do this in QlikSense without extensions is less than ideal if you want to do it across the whoel dashbaord, but it may work for you.

Using the function GetSelectedCount()

In your Expression(s)

IF (GetSelectedCount(YourField)= 0,

     Count({<YourField={'Default'}>}Number),

     Count(Number)

     )

Hi,

PFA. Try to use this extension.

GitHub - KumarNatarajan/qliksenselistbox: Qlik Sense Listbox Extension

P.S: it's not like our native qliksense prompt filter . it's good extension for always one selected string value but not the data/other period (i.e variable option not there)

Thanks

Deva

HEy,

Thanks this works. But the problem is let say on sheet1, i ahve a filter YTD/MTD and if i make YTD as always one selected value and now if i move to sheet2, this YTD is still visible as current selection although it has no relevance to sheet2. Any option to resolve this?

Hey Nikhil - That's standard Qlik Sense behavior I would assume. The whole contextual self service analytics.

Thanks,

A

Depends on the number of options you want to filter on.  If its around 10,20 and they dont really change much you could look at using something like QS Variable and set it as a drop down then you can use the variable value to be more tailored in your content display limiting it to a sheet a chart or across the board.

Example using buttons here but the principles the same.
