qlik sense chart without dimension

Hi,

I'm currently reviewing Qlik Sense and I try to rebuild a dashboard, we already have in use with QlikView.

Therefore I need to build a Pie-/Donutchart that contains serveral Expressions but NO dimensions.

I find myself failing to create such a Chart, and hope anyone can help out.

regards

FO

Re: qlik sense chart without dimension

then You can use Gage chart or KPI's chart or text objects for the same. but not the Pie chart.

Re: qlik sense chart without dimension

How would the pie chart know what to segment by without a dimension?

I think as vinaykumar suggests a screen shot would help to show what you are looking to achieve and allow people to offer solutions.

Re: qlik sense chart without dimension

First, thank you for your answer.

I don't have a screenshot at hand right now, but I found a blog Post that addresses this topic and shows what I am trying to achieve: Expressionless and Dimensionless Charts | Qlikview Cookbook

Re: qlik sense chart without dimension

perhaps add an expression as:

=''

has an "expression" but title would be blank and would cover all (~filtered) data

Re: qlik sense chart without dimension

So you are looking to visualise a value that has been calculated and perhaps displayed in a KPI already.

In that case you would need to create a dynamic dimension as a master item I think.

Something like

=ValueList('Sales','Margins')

Then in your measure would be something like

If( <your dimension> = {'Sales'}, <your sales calc>, <your margin calc>)

Re: qlik sense chart without dimension

Attached is a working example of this approach

What is ValueList?  see if it will work for your case.

Re: qlik sense chart without dimension

Thank you all very much for your help.

Combining some of your answers I found a way to make my chart work. It looks a little different from what I had in mind beforehand, but it meets the users requirements just as well. Thanks alot.
