Pivot Table - Total Option (Above & Below)

Hi Techies, There are lot of updates in the qlik sense server (i.e. Charts, Data management, etc.,). But, I really felt very bad about the PIVOT TABLE. Every clients needs pivot table total to be placed below the rows. Why don't we have any changes in the pivot table row total (Above & Below option) and for column totals (Right & Left).. ?? This will be a great advantage if we have this option too.. 🙂 Thanks.

To be fair, the Pivot Table need a total redesign :

-placement of total

-more flexibility to develop (develop column by column or develop several columns at once)

-proper displaying of column header

-etc, etc...


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.

Will be useful to have the option to let the user to decide if to show / hide totals per dimension.

This is very much needed, SIMPLY having the Totals on the right, rather than the left in a Pivot table is super simple yet powerful.

It's over 1.5y and still we can't make totals on the bottom... 
It's not funny

From my (partner) perspective, as we look for ways to help clients make the migration from QlikView to Qlik Sense, this is a functionality gap that keeps arising.  Some time back, there was an indication that advanced authoring was a priority and I would like to think this qualifies.

This function gap comes up regularly for financial reporting and while the P&L Pivot extension goes some way to closing this gap, it would be beneficial to have this type of control over the standard pivot table as there are times when the P&L Pivot isn't suitable i.e. reporting with multi-level chart of accounts.

As a workaround we can publish a QlikView app in the Qlik Sense hub, however, that doesn't offer the opportunity to really use all of the benefits that Qlik Sense can offer, nor does it really assist new sites.

I appreciate the opportunity to provide Qlik with this level of feedback and I know there are a lot of competing priorities, however, it would be great to understand where this fits on the product roadmap.
