QlikView pittfalls when starting in Sense?

Hi, old QlikView developer setting out to develop in Qlik Sense.
Somewhere I saw a link to a tutorial pointing out things developers experienced in QlikView try doing which they should avoid in Sense.

Don't remember where I saw it and can't find it neither in the forums nor on Google.

Anybody know what I might be thinking of and can point me in the right direction?

Re: QlikView pittfalls when starting in Sense?

Hey there,

There are a couple of things that in Qlik Sense you should avoid as opposed with QlikView:

  • Trying to make Horizontal Combo Charts;
  • Trying to use section access in Qlik Sense Desktop;
  • Trying to make this kind of charts: Mekko, Radar, Slider/Calendar;
  • Trying to make button with some VB macro in it;
  • Trying to make a Slider/Calendar object;
  • Trying to use multilanguage labels in every chart you make;
  • Trying to make a background image in your sheet;
  • Trying to make a container with more that one chart in it;
  • Trying to make Trellis Chart in a Bar or Line Chart;
  • ...

Many other examples can be described that Qlik Sense doesn't have capability to do.

Hope this can make you clear, if not, i'll try to find some good documentation

Regards,

MB

Re: QlikView pittfalls when starting in Sense?

Thanks,
a few things to think about and I think I knew most of them.

Think the tutorial was named 'Don't build QlikView apps in Qlik Sense' or something similar?
I did not read/watch it at the time but thought I would follow up on it later.
Only problem is I can no longer find it.
Therefore I don't know what it contained and I can't tell if you covered the information or not.

Thanks, yes I saw those and browsed through some of them but there is not the one I was looking for.
Never the less it is a good starting point.
