Actions on Leave Sheet

Actions on Leave Sheet

Hi guys,

in the Qlik Sense April 2.020 recent update, you've added actions into the sheets, but I've realized that this option is only available when you open the sheet, so the actions are only available onOpenSheet, but not onLeaveSheet.

 

For example, I have a case when I want to filter a field in one sheet1, but clear the filter of the sheet1 in the rest of my sheets. If I could delete the selections on leave the sheet, it would be cleaner to do it.

Best regards, Marcel.

@marcel_olmo absolutely aggree with you that this should be available in QS. nevertheless there are extensions that provide this already.

Thanks @Oliver_F. Could you share the extension that makes the workaround?

Best regards, Marcel.

@marcel_olmo we are a certified Trusted Extension Developer (TED) and have developed MENUBAR. And can do much more and included several action triggers (on selection, on load, on leave, etc.).

There is a version in the branch https://developer.qlik.com/garden/5a16b9de0476b8847a007e96

And a paid version if you want to have support and our logo removed. ( https://www.truechart.com/home/demo/ )

Feel free do send me a private message if you want to have a short demo of the extension.

Thank you for your feedback on ways to improve our product. While this is something we understand would be useful, it's not on the short-term roadmap. Please continue to show your support for this idea.

Thanks,

Patric

Yes, that would be very useful feature. Maybe in addition to that, it would be possible to change onOpenSheet trigger? I think, actions should be executed first (before objects calculation). Currently when I have sheet with object that contains large data set, some actions are applied right away but objects are calculated at the same time and sometimes few actions are applied after the object is calculated and it calculates again with new selections. I think it's reasonable to first apply all actions and then calculate tables and charts.

Great idea #2 - it can be a painfully slow experience waiting for charts to respond and then re-respond.

I think it could be very useful having the functionality to trigger an action on leaving a sheet event as in Qlikview.
Actually you can only trigger an action on activating a sheet event.
I hope it's already in the roadmap.
Have a nice day and take care.
Best Regards.
