Qlik Sense Cloud was updated yesterday (Oct 1st, 2018) with new capabilities, including the introduction of Alternate States.
The alternate states is a feature that was already available in QlikView, and it allows users to perform a comparative analysis between sets of multiple data items, for example for basket analysis purposes. A state holds a set of selections.
The Qlik Sense developer can create multiple states within an application and apply these states to specific objects and sheets.
The functionality is aiming Guided Analytics use cases, and is enabled by a Qlik Sense developer and should be used with caution as it can cause great confusion with end-users as there is no automatic on-screen indication that objects or expressions are in, or reference, alternate states. It is up to the developer to provide this information to the end-user.
