Create a table by dragging several fields

To create a table, we have to drag an empty table to the sheet.and add each field one by one.

It will be useful to create it by selecting different fields from the assets panel and dragging them into the sheet.

 

It was easy to see all fields from a table in QlikView, it takes more time in Qlik Sense.

Totally agree!

Currently I'm still much quicker in QlikView than in Qlik Sense, as we can add multiple fields in Qlikview at once!

--> CTRL+Select multiple Fields & Drag&Drop to Table would be wonderful!

Agreed, and conversely, the ability to remove multiple fields in tables would be use too.

This could be expanded to sheets. I build with the intent to make a user version with many less sheets. If I have a dev and user version it's a lot fiddly to migrate the changes across but sometimes quicker than making another copy of the dev version and removing the dev only sheets. In QV I used to set a hide flag on the dev only sheets based on the QVW file location. Local copy I see all the sheets, network copy only show user sheets. Updates involve overwrite of network copy...

I often create little tables on temporary sheets to see what my data looks like, even though there is a Data Manager. Multiselect + drag to get a table would be very welcome!

These are two extensions developed for precisely this purpose:

Completely agree.  As a Business Objects developer, I do this all the time when checking my formulas.  In Qlik Sense, it takes much longer.
