My boss asked me recently how many charts Qlik Sense supports, which led me to thinking: What counts as a chart? Should I just count the number of charts in the asset panel and the visualization bundle? That’s easy: 29, but there are many more...
Many are very similar, so what’s the point? Well, most charts have a specific purpose, so it does help to have different names to tell them apart.
But what about Qlik Sense?Many charts have dual or multiple modes.For instance, the Pie chart is alsothe Donut chart and the Line chart can also be an Area chart. And of course, the Bar chart, which also could be a Stacked bar chart and so forth. These variants are often found in the property panel, and they’re easy to find. I list them as standard charts too, so now I have34 35 (in my count, probably more depending on your definition of a chart type).
But how about the charts that require a few more settings?Like the Chord diagram (derived from the map chart) or the Candlestick (derived from the boxplot).When I choose to count those, I end up with 536168 73, but I’m sure we can create more!
The Qlik community is full of cool people like TeréziaBlašková, whoshared how to make a QQ plot with standard Qlik Sense. Have you derived a chart in Qlik Sense? Please let us know, write about it and post a link in the comments!
Oh, and of course I haven’t even begun to talk about all the chart types people made by building extensions to Qlik Sense, but that is a different story for another time.
