Dynamic labels in Qlik Sense

Dynamic labels in Qlik Sense

The topic of dynamic labels in Qlik sense has been a discussed over and over

as something that is missing from the product.

So the good news is there are dynamic labels in Sense native visualizations ,

but before you jump from your seat , the bad news it only works in Pivot Table and only in measures.

(which raise a question if it works in Pivot table why not in other visualizations?).

So how do you create dynamic labels in pivot table it's actually very easy.

just write in the label your expression and the expression will be evaluated as a formula.

for example

sales $(=Year(today()) will display Sales 2017

attach is a demo model

i really hope that come June and version 4 this topic and example will be deemed not relevant

Hi as I wrote in the original post

this method only works for measures , not for dimensions

and I am not aware of any work around in pivot table

if you can use straight table

than you can look at this extension (but you should know this isn't a free extension you need to pay in order to use it)
