Alternate state in Qlik Sense

I'm still on version 3.2 in Qlik Sense Server.

Need to compare data and I thought "alternate state" would be a good way to start.

Downloaded Extension: SetObjectState.  Installed in a good way but I'm not able to add State, se below. I can't type in State name??altState .PNG

Also installed q2g alternate State (extension). This one I couldnt open.

Need to compare?

Any news about this in new qlik releases?

Regards Lars

Re: Alternate state in Qlik Sense

It is possible to do comparative analysis without Alternate States.

1) You can use the $1 (and if necessary $2...$9) previous selection states.

      at least for simpler comparative analysis this works well.

2) You can use two bookmarks which contain the selections that you want to compare against each other and then you simply do something like this:

                   Sum( {BM1} Sales) / Sum( {BM2} Sales )

3) You can use dimensions in data islands.

Hi,

did you take a look at the branch or send an email to the developers ?

Hi Lars,

I'm afraid there is a bug in 3.2 APIs that break quite a lot of extensions, this might be why it's not working. You should really consider upgrading.

Hi,

just have a look to https://github.com/q2g/q2g-ext-alternatestates

BUT alternate States are still buggy in Sense Enterprise, they work perfect

in Sense Desktop.

bye

Hi,

Have you checked the browser console for errors? Do other extensions work?

Re: Alternate state in Qlik Sense

Instead of downloading single extension I downloaded a whole package.

https://m.sense2go.net/extension-package

Now I can open the extension but after a while when I use the extension qlik sense release april 2018(Desktop) crashes.
