Macro - no. QlikSense is not using macros.

You can try to write an extension to QS (basically using javascript + html/css).

Maybe these extensions will be helpful:

Re: Macro on Qlik sense dekstop

Hi,

Thank you so much for your response. I found what I need inside Dev Hub that permits me to create a button where I can launch a re-load data. the string is: "<lui-button ng-click="app.doReload()">Reload app</lui-button><br/>".

I would know if it's possible to create an automatically re-load after a programmed number of minutes

Try this extension - you can define the time to reload.

Thanks for your response,

nevertheless I have some problems concerning the installation of the extension.

In particular I don't know how the extension should be transfered on qlik

Hi Matteo,

it is easy, where (in folder) you installed you Qlik Sense: you should have some folder like: Extensions; here you should save your extension and in Qlik Sens Desktop (see screenshot))you can use your extension

Re: Macro on Qlik sense dekstop

Just download the zip file:

http://branch.qlik.com/#!/project/58276ae8d4dbcc7481114356

(then click on link to the "github" link, where the file is stored)

and copy whole folder to the location as below:

C:\Users\your_username\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Extensions\

After refresh you can use the extension in Qlik Sense (drag and drop - just like bar chart etc.)

Re: Macro on Qlik sense dekstop

Thanks,

I realize after my message that my question was really simple...

I launched the extension but the extension creates a pop up:

I can't understand why.

The version of Qlik sense dekstop is the 3.2 SR4 one

I don't know how to fix this problem, I just did what you told me
