Show/Hide in Qlik Sense

Hi All,

Is it possible to have show/hide conditions in Qlik Sense ?

I do think that I will be able to create some very nice dashboards in Qlik Sense.  We have a much better text object, so it will be easier to create those type of objects, and we can also leverage extensions (see my post - Raphaëljs based extension) for additional dashboard type objects.

I am not quite so sure how "best practice" some of the show/hide stuff that I have seen in the past is anyway.  I would prefer to just show, where appropriate, and let people discover.

This product is close to what I see as a great data discovery tool - building on the Qlik associative experience - and adding better UI and easy to use self-service.  It fits a lot of my own ideas on building interfaces.  Even at v0.96, it is ticking a lot of boxes for me.

Stephen

Hi James

I have been working on something that might help. It is mostly a solution for cyclic dimensions, but might suit what you are after if you need one of a number of dimensions to display depending on a user selection. The post if here:

Cyclic Dimension in Sense

I also have a call for help embedded in the same post, related to getting something with the extensions API working. So if someone can assist with that I would be very appreciative.

Hi Lee,

Thanks for the post, it's definitely a good idea and worth using, was wondering what opinion was surrounding the use of show hide conditions and the possible future inclusion in Qlik Sense. I have found it useful (if not the most elegant) for clients who require a lot of info in one page (e.g a 3 layer drill down). My first preference would be to split the document out, but cost constraints on clients mean that is not always possible, does anyone else feel some clients may miss out on the obvious design benefits of Sense, by not having some of the major functionality of Qlikview ? To eloborate, at my previous employer, each business area had it's own QVW, at my present employer, the clients are much smaller and may have up to 8 business areas in 1 QVW.

Hi James,

In regards to:

...does anyone else feel some clients may miss out on the obvious design benefits of Sense, by not having some of the major functionality of Qlikview ?

As you know, Qlik Sense and QlikView - are really positioned for different individual use cases or they can compliment each other in the same organization. I have witnessed many opportunities where BOTH products are positioned. QlikView is still a viable product in the market and will be for time to come. The goal of Qlik Sense is not really to replace or replicate everything that QlikView can do, but perhaps find new ways of doing things or improve on older ways of doing thing, while allowing easier and more self-service data visualization capabilities to our common business user. It is possible that the most useful and important capabilities that those found in QlikView could be available in Qlik Sense in a future release. This is just the beginning for Qlik Sense, expect a lot more to come in the near future. Our release cadence is to make new point releases available quarterly with big fixes, features and enhancements.

Please let us know how else we can help you.

Hi Stephen

Thanks for the information.

Is there a way we can create Ad-Hoc and Dynamic Analysis in Qliksense, like the way we create in Qlikview?

The reason behind the ask is we don't have any Conditional option in Dimensions and Expressions Tab of Chart Properties.

Request to please clarify the same..

Thanks

Hi Josh,

I also have the problem James mentioned.

I want to set some conditions for table dimensions which can show different level's hierarchy information but I'm not sure how to create drill down dimension in Qlik Sense.

Could you please give more help?
