Quick Qlik Tricks - an easy Change Log


Quick Qlik Tricks - an easy Change Log

Change Log table.png

Have you ever wanted a simple way to maintain a change log for your app that's easy to maintain and easy to display in the UI? 

Today, I'm pleased to show you a quick and convenient method of keeping track of the version history for an app. It was a technique I developed at my last consulting job. 

We simply use an inline table to maintain a list of changes in the load script. The users can view the change history in a pivot table in the UI. 

The main features are

  • The use of the pipe '|' character as the delimiter. It allows for commas to be included in the description.
  • Three simple lines of code to automatically calculate the current version number of the app, which can then be displayed in the UI.
  • A pivot table with a blank measure that is fully expanded.

 I hope you find this useful. Please let me know if you have improvements for this code or if you have alternative ideas. Cheers!
