Make GetObjectField() available in all parts of an object

Today, when designing a Qlik Sense object with alternative dimensions it is hard to create dynamic behaviour based on which dimension is choosen. 

Example 1: Header
I would like to dynamicly set the object header based on which dimension is choosen in my object. 

Header:  ='Sum of sales per' & #My active dimension#

Example 2:

I also would like to create an an aggregated average calculation as a reference line using the active dimension the dimension used in my aggr.

Ref Line:  =avg(aggr(Sum(Sales), #My active dimension# )

 

I believe this could easily be accomplished by letting the function GetObjectField() become available in all parts of an Qlik Sense chart object, not only in the measure and dimension expressions. 

My suggestion is that GetObjectField() becomes available in these locations as well:

  • Title
  • Subtitle
  • Footer
  • Reference line expression.

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,

Hello, this is really needed, along with getobjectmeasure() for dynamically modifying the title of charts.

I agree that this is really needed. Having getobjectmeasure() is crucial for customers to know what data they are looking at. Having a generic title for a chart with alternate measures can lead to misinterpretation and therefore incorrect decisions. Furthermore, clicking the 3 dots to select alternate measures is not intuitive so I already have to use up one of the title fields to explain to click the 3 dots, then click Exploration Menu in order to select alternate measures. Having more clarity all around is necessary and appreciated. Thank you.

It would be very useful to show the selected measure and/or dimensions in a chart with alternative measures and/or dimension. The names on both axes are too small to read properly, thus allow for misinterpretation of the data the user is looking at. Is this something that will be developed in Qlik Sense Enterprise?
