Hi Michael,

By the way, I saw there are a lot videos about how to start Qlik Sense but can't watch them.

I think we can't access Youtube in China due to some government control.

May I ask you to attach the mp4 file for them so that we also can get the latest information about Qlik Sense?

Thanks very much.

Regards\ Helen

Hi Michael,

Thanks very much for the link and that's quite good for our Chinese learners .

By the way, if you can update the videos to consistent with this community, that will be perfect.

Thanks for confirming that only the owner can modify variables.  I created an app that uses input boxes and a reload button to modify variables.  Little did I know I was the only one able to run the reload because I was the app owner.

Looking at other threads and unable to find relevant material.

Using 3.01 -

What are (are there) limitations on defining Variables using the method demonstrated in the video (aka not defined in scripts)?

Are there restrictions on where you can use Variables (vs Master Item Measures or 'regular' Fields)?

I was able to create a variable using two fields sum(a)/sum(b) - just wondering how complex the variable creation can get.

I finally figured out to display a numeric variable in a KPI -  I had to $(vVariablename) - use the $ sign and left/right parens.   I could not just use vVariablename.    But for the reference line I was still able to use vVariablename.   I saw you said best practice was to always use the $().   - is there guidance on where that syntax is mandatory?  And is there a plan to change all usage to require the $()?
