Master items

Hi all!

Why “help.qlik.com” says the master items are reusable assets? What is the purpose of master items?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Master items

Cause you can reuse this item(Dimension,Measure or Visualisation) multiple times.

Example:

if I have field ADDRESS I can create new Dimension:

=left(ADDRESS,3)

I will give it a name: AbbrName

and use that Dimension everywhere in my application.

Does that help?
