Qlik Introduces a New Era of Visualization! READ ALL ABOUT IT

We are happy to announce the next version of our client-managed analytics offering, Qlik Sense August 2023.  This version is primarily focused on visualization improvements including a variety of new customization and styling options, and enhancements to navigation and design.  Users will also appreciate new support of parquet files, providing storage savings and enhanced performance for large data sets. 


In this release, you will find the following new capabilities, many of which are already available in Qlik Cloud today: 

Visualizations & Dashboards

New Styling Settings in “App Options” UI

New application styling settings in “App options” allow you to turn the Toolbar and Sheet Title on or off for all sheets. Turning the Toolbar and/or Sheet Title off provides more space for content and allows you to customize selections for titles and the navigation bar.




Additional Options for Bar Charts  

New Bar Chart options have been added, allowing application developers to enable toggling across different dimensions or measures within the same chart. The ability to add a simple toggle switch using the “show condition” expression gives developers more control, improves customization, and saves space. Users will appreciate significant time savings with the ability to toggle across the variables associated with their Bar Chart data.  


New Legend Styling

New styling options for Legends are now available, providing greater flexibility and customization. Legend styling is available for Line, Bar, Pie, Mekko, and Waterfall charts, plus Scatterplot and Distribution Plot. Options for Legend styling include font family, size, and color for Title and Labels.


New Styling Panels for Button Object, Line Charts and Tree Map

A new Styling Panel adds flexibility and customization to the Button Object. Through this enhancement, you can set text size as Fixed, Fluid (resize relative to button height), or Responsive (scales to always fit).



Font styling for Line Charts has been updated to utilize the Nebula framework. Styling includes titles, subtitles, and footnotes, and includes options for font size, color, and family.


The new Styling Panel for the Tree Map extends your ability to customize the look and feel to meet organizational standards and preferences. It includes font size, color, and family options for titles, subtitles, and footnotes. You can also choose background image and color.



New Chart Hover and Selection Menu Design

We have re-designed the chart hover and selection, providing better customization and enhancing chart rendering with new visual styling options.


Insight Advisor  

New Visibility into App Enablement status within UI

When natural language capabilities (Insight Advisor Search and Chat) are enabled for an app, we now show a notification banner with the enablement status of the app.  This helps users know when apps are ready to support search, so they do not try to access the feature before indexing is complete.


Parquet File Support  

New Support for reading and writing parquet files

Apache Parquet is a columnar storage format, highly efficient for storing and querying large datasets. In Qlik Sense on Windows, you can now read data from Parquet files and store tables as Parquet files. Using Parquet allows for efficient querying of specific columns in a table rather than reading the entire table. This makes it well-suited for use with big data processing. Also, Parquet supports efficient compression and encoding of data which can further reduce storage space and improve query performance.
