QlikProductUpdates

Coming off Qlik World, we are happy to announce the next version of Qlik Sense May 2023 - our Client-Managed analytics offering.  This version is primarily focused on visualization improvements including a new filter pane object, a variety of new styling options, and enhancements to navigation and design.  We also have included a new Google Analytics 4 connector and improved authentication for several other connectors.

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

 

Visualizations & Dashboards:


New Filter Pane

The new Filter Pane is a highly requested feature improvement. Like the List Box from QlikView, the new Filter pane includes a grid layout. It also provides several new capabilities, including grid mode, search mode (with wildcard option), checkbox mode, compact view, and histogram.

Table Exploration Menu

One of the most significant updates of the year, the new Straight Table significantly boosts self­ service capabilities with expanded exploratory analysis and reporting. It acts as a catch-all table, providing users with the flexibility to pick and choose how they would like their layout presented. Users can add many fields simultaneously, alternate dimensions and measures, customize column width, view the user field picker, choose pagination or virtual scroll, and store the layout in bookmarks.

New Background Options for Charts

We continue to roll out additional capabilities that add flexibility and customization to Qlik Sense Saas visualizations, you can now include backgrounds in bar charts with the option to set an image or color.

Increased number of visible lines within line chart art

Based on customer feedback, we have extended the number of data points that can be shown on the Line Chart. This gives users more flexibility and scalability within the Line Chart.

New Styling Panels

Provides flexibility, allowing customers to conform to company, department, or personal style standards and preferences. The styling panel for Text and Image covers titles, subtitles, and footnotes, and includes options for font size, color, and family.

New Axis and Value Label Styling for select charts

Styling for Bar Chart, Pie Chart, Combo Chart, and Scatter Plot has been enhanced to include axis title, axis labels, and value labels. These improvements add flexibility for customers, allowing them to conform to company, department, or personal style standards and preferences.


New Chart Hover and Selection Menu Design

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

 


Advanced Authoring:


New Engine Function

Working within the Qlik Engine object hierarchy, the new GetObjectld() chart function allows you to set a variable with sheet ID and a sheet action, automating the retrieval of the current sheet ID. This simplifies the creation of custom navigation, currently a tedious process. This feature was highly requested by customers.

Connectivity:


OAuth support for Databricks via MS Azure

The Qlik Databricks connector in Qlik Sense now supports the OAuth authentication option. This option will allow a Qlik Sense user to authenticate with Data bricks in the most secure way using OAuth 2.0. The support for OAuth also allows single sign-on (SSO) to Data bricks with Qlik Sense Saas when using an identity provider. This release only supports OAuth authentication with Databricks on Azure, but we plan to expand this capability to the other cloud platforms we support with Databricks in the future.

 

Google Analytics 4 Connector

The Google Analytics 4 connector extracts traffic and engagement metrics from your Google Analytics 4- enabled websites and apps and loads that data into your Qlik Sense apps.
Google is replacing Universal Analytics with Google Analytics 4. For more information about this change, see Google Analytics Help.


New authentication methods for Azure SQL database and Azure Synapse Analytics connectors

  • The Azure SQL database and Azure Synapse Analytics connectors now support two new authentication methods:
  • Azure OAuth: Allows single sign-on (SSO) when using an identity provider.
  • Azure Active Directory: Protects user identity and simplifies the sign-in experience.

@Or - a click anywhere on the filter box is actually equivalent to pressing on the actual chevron (which is the natural place to try to click as it draws your attention, I agree). FYI, floater was rendered outside the viz until very recently and changed as it could obscure neighboring objects which was also not ideal.

about the filter pane: 

this is 'grid/compact' mode... vs climber extension... 

mikaelsc_1-1685520895962.png

would it be possible to look into the padding around the dimension values... 

i don't think it's an unreasonable request to be able to have enough space for years and months on top of sheets without having to scroll horizontally..

@Lucke_Hallbergson Thanks for responding. I'm aware that the entire box is clickable, but everyone I've had test this version so far has commented on this getting in the way, so perhaps it needs reconsidering. Another option might be to delay the floater by a few seconds (either globally or just in cases where it's a filter dropdown), which should give people time to click without having a popup get in their way. I'm sure Qlik's UX people can figure out the best option, but based on the feedback I've gotten so far and my own experience, this one isn't it.

Hi,

we have noticed a change in functionality. In the original Filter pane, if an invalid dimension was included in the list of fields the filter pane still rendered, albeit with a broken filter, however in the new filter pane the inclusion of an invalid field prevents the filter pane from rendering. 

Best,

Alastair

Hi, Can any confirm if this scenario works fine with the new Straight Table component?

-Create a table with multiple dimensions and a few measures. Add a condicional 'Show if' for some dimensions and keep them disabled.

- Enable totals.

It looks like totals are placed as if all dimensions are enabled.
