Count number of opens tab or/and clicks on button

Hello,

I want to count the number of times my QlikView tabs are being opened or the amount of times a button is clicked, but I don't know exactly how to do this. I was thinking about using the on activate sheet trigger but then I don't know what to do, I can't update a variable because that will refresh every session and that will only work per user.

I saw that I could also use a Macro but i'm not that familiar with that.

Can someone help me with this.

Greetings,

Roy van Heusden

Go to Document Properties -> General Tab -> Click on Memory Statistics -> Save the file

     Create a test application and load the file which you saved.

     You will find the statistics of each objects used in the application.

Hello Robert, thank you for your response, I wasn't familiar with that option. I just tried it and I don't think it offers me the information I need. It's not clear to me how I can get the opens of a specific tab.

I was hoping for a solution what can add a line to a txt file or someting with the date and the name of the tab or button. Then i will be able to see how many times a tab/button is opened over time.

Try using the QV System Monitor. It parses the log files and presents user stats.

QlikView Application: System Monitor v5.1.20

Hope this helps,

Jason

Thank you Jason, I will try to look into this, this week. I gave it a quick peek, and i saw that I need to set quite some settings.

There are a few, yes. But just set the file locations and reload - what you need might be in there already.
