Hi Paul

The new variable feature allows the user to manage variables from the front end rather than allow the user to set the variable value themselves.  You still need to use the QSVariable extension to create the functionality you have until Qlik Sense bring out their own button, dropdown slider objects to control variable setting in the dashboard.

Change the values of your variable from 1,2,3 to the names of the dimensions. Then use $(vSalesView) as chart expression. See attached qvf.

By using the number of the discussion in the file name I can easily find the document on my hard disk again. And the other way around too. I can easily find the discussion that I once made the document for.
