Creating Dimensions and Measures

Attachments

One of my favorite features of Qlik Sense is the ability to create and reuse Master Items.  Master Items are dimensions, measures and visualizations that have been saved in the Asset panel in a Qlik Sense app.  In the attached document I describe how dimensions and measures can be created in Qlik Sense.


Also check out my blog on Master Items.

Thank you Jennell for this.

What I am definitely missing is the possibility to create master items within QSense Script. Your possibilities all need manual work. This is not feasible if KPIs, dimensions etc. are already defined in e.g. an XLS file for QlikView.

Is there a way to tag your fields with dimensions and measures in a QVD file, like in QlikView:

/* To indicate to QlikView that fields are dimensions */

TAG FIELDS  field1, field2 WITH $dimension;

/* To indicate to QlikView that fields are measures */

TAG FIELDS field3, field, 4 WITH $measure;

This is working in QlikView, but as far as I can see, not in Sense. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi

I think the tags cannot be used to create master items. Check

What is the benefit of creating dimensions from fields, when fields can also be inserted into tables as dimensions.
