Hello everybody,

The Qlik Community team has been hard at work making improvements throughout the Community in December and January. Take a look at these recent enhancements for forums, blogs, events, emails, and additional features.




1. Product Forums Split into Analytics & Integration

We've split the Qlik Product Forums into two separate forums - one for Data Analytics Products, and one for Data Integration products. The product forums you are used to seeing under Qlik Product Forums are now under Qlik Data Analytics Forums:

2. Launched Data Integration Forums

We've launched a new set of forums for all of our Data Integration products (formerly Attunity), with product experts assigned to each forum to help members and answer questions. These forums are for current data integration users, or anyone interested in learning more about these offerings.

3. Launched QlikWorld Forum

We've created a new forum all things QlikWorld! Find FAQs, breakout sessions, and more inside the QlikWorld forum. Feel free to ask any questions you may have about QlikWorld, and one of our many experts will be able to help.

5. Qlik Sense Cloud to Qlik Sense Business

In conjunction with Qlik's move from Qlik Sense Cloud to Qlik Sense Business, we've archived the Qlik Sense Cloud forum. Conversations around cloud can now take place in the Qlik Sense SaaS & Multi-Cloud board.

6. Qlik Sense Ideas Updates

We've made quite a few updates to the Qlik Sense Ideas board, as we prepare to launch a revamped Ideas program at Qlik. We've reviewed every idea, and updated the labels and statuses on each one. We also added a status component to show the number of ideas in each status.

The Qlik Sense Ideas board will close February 21 while make final preparations for the new ideas program.

7. Ideas: Search Before Posting

In order to prevent the same ideas from being requested over and over again, we now have a workflow that requires searching the community for similar posts before creating a new idea post.

8. Banner Updates for Services and Product Insight

We completed our page banner updates with new banners for Qlik Services and Qlik Product Insight forums.

9. Hero Promo Cards on Discussion Boards

We now have the ability to include hero promo cards onto discussion board pages to feature content relevant to the specific board. Here is one we added to the New to Qlik Sense board.

10. Resolved Error on Edit Blog Page

We've resolved an error that was appearing on the Edit Blog page that prevented the Preview from working correctly. 


11. Consistent Spacing between Viewing Modes

When drafting a blog post, there were spacing issues with line returns rendering differently depending on the view of the draft, preview, and published blog post. We've resolved that issue so the spacing appears in draft and preview mode the same as it will appear in the published post.

Bonus Tip: When drafting any post in the community (blog, discussion, document, or other type) pressing ENTER crates a double-spaced line return. You can create a single-spaced line return by holding the SHIFT key when you press ENTER.


12. Qlik Gallery Healthcare Posters

We've added posters from the 2018 Healthcare Poster Contest to the Qlik Gallery. Check out the gallery to see what other users have created, and create your own to share your best apps with the community!

13. Events & Webinars Filters

We've added two new drop-downs on the Events & Webinars page to filter between Product Family (Data Analytics or Data Integration) and Event Type.

14. Reordering Events Cards

On the Events & Webinars page, the Qlik Community team now has the ability to reorder the event cards to show the most relevant scheduled events near the top, and move on-demand webinars further down.


15. Subscribe to Events & Webinars Page

We've added the options menu to the Events & Webinars Page to allow members to subscribe to the page to get notified when new events are added.

Notification Emails


16. Digest Email Updates

We've made a couple of updates to the Community Digest email to remove the duplicate "Community" from the subject line and also added an image and registration link for QlikWorld. Hope to see you there!

17. Reminder Emails to Mark Solutions

Members who post a question and receive replies on it will now receive an email reminding them to review the responses to mark one or more replies as Solutions. This helps keep the community clean and organized by showing which posts are resolved with Solutions, and which posts are still open.



Additional Features


18. Added Private Messages to Search

Community Search has been expanded so that you can now choose the Private Messages tab to search for keywords in your private messages!

19. Enabled Attachments on Mobile Devices

We've enabled the ability to attach files to new posts and replies from a mobile device. To attach files, click the paperclip icon below the body field, just like you would on a desktop or laptop computer.

20. Content Mentions

Most members are already familiar with the @Mention feature to mention specific users in a post. But now, you can use the @Mention feature to quickly link to posts as well. To do so, just type "@" followed by keywords, and the menu will display content results to choose from. Click a result to add the link to the post.

21. System Updates to Improve SEO

We've made several system updates to improve SEO,with more to come. We know that many users prefer to use Google to find content in the community, and these updates should make the Google results even more relevant to your search.


22. Launched User Feedback Survey

Last, but certainly not least, we've launch a user feedback survey to find out how well the community is serving our members, and to see how we can best improve. If you receive the survey pop-up, we'd love to hear your thoughts. It's short and sweet and takes less than a minute to complete.
