This is a full tutorial for developers wishing to build Qlik Sense applications.  It's a complete and self contained tutorial that uses real data with real data problems. The tutorial covers the following topics:

  • Loading data from files
  • Renaming and editing data
  • Building charts (line charts, pie charts, scatter plots, tables, filters, gauges, text & images)
  • Avoiding repetition using master items
  • Viewing the data model
  • Consistent colors and good visual design
  • Mobile development.

The installer includes all of the files you need to run the tutorial, including all data files, a full set of instructions, and completed applications for you to play with. There's also an accompanying YouTube video that illustrates every step of the process.


You must have Qlik Sense installed on your system. You must install the tutorial files (using the installer below).

Download the tutorial

  • Download the tutorial installer here.
    Once you've downloaded the installer, run it to install the files in the correct locations.


  • (optional) - See the Tutorials.zip file and extract to temp directory
  • Copy the Tutorial directory to C:\Users\<user profile>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\

What's in the installer?

The installer will install a number of files on your machine, consuming about 12 MB. The installation process will put a shortcut to the tutorial instructions on your desktop and open it in your PDF reader. Here's a list of the installed files, what they are, and where they are installed.

This tutorial is really a great way to get an effective intro to Sense as looks like the conventional QlikView cannot be offered to new customers..

Anyway, I run into the same issue as zlt555qlikview above, regarding the Year values which are displayed in the line chart.

In bar  chart, or pivot table, the values are correct.
