Ad-hoc(Self service report) in Qlik Sense

Hi all,

Can anyone suggest me how to create ad-hoc kind of report (table) where, I will be having dimension and measure selection and whichever I select, only those dimensions and measures should get display in table.

Re: Ad-hoc(Self service report) in Qlik Sense

I did something like this in an app.

I use an extension so that the user can pick the Dimension that they want.

I load an inline table that contains the choices from the filter along with the actual field value that I need to get the data.

  // Used to assign the correct field based on the selection made in filter on Patient Outcomes Sheet


Load * Inline [


'By Facility','Facility'

'By District','District'

'By Region','Region'

'By MeasureDesc','MeasureDesc'

'By ReferralSource','ReferralSourceID'

'By PrimaryProgram','PrimaryProgramDesc'

'By SecondaryProgram','SecondaryProgramDesc'

'By DiagnosticGroup','DiagnosticGroupDesc'

'By MedicalDx','MedicalDxDesc'

'By FDScale','MeasureGroup_Scale'

'By EOC Destination','EOCDest'


In the table my dimension is defined as

$(='[' & only(Dim1) & ']')

The field in the filter extension is Display so that I can match it to the inline table.

Hope that helps as does what you want.
