QMC Tasks: Tree view of task chain

QMC Tasks: Tree view of task chain

Current QMC Tasks list only allows for seeing the preceding and following tasks of a specific task.

A tree view would be more helpful.

If there is an app for this the idea can be closed.

This is a must.

I am surprised that this does not have more likes. In bigger environments it is completely impossible to get a good overview of the dependencies.

I think this should belong in the QMC since it is such a core feature to and structure the tasks there.

Yes, big like! This is very useful if you have many chained tasks. It will give you a better overview of the task list.

I agree - removing tree view and simple task stats (as last and average reload times) is completely unintelligible for me.

I've worked a bit on a standalone tool (Windows, Mac) doing this (and more), the tree view looks something like this:

A question for you guys out there though:

Would a standalone tool be useful? Sort of a standalone QMC app with features missing in the standard QMC.
Or should it go into the QMC (then we'll have to wait for Qlik to prioritise it, of course)?

I need it to determine tasks reload order so I guess standalone would be useful too 🙂

Another like from me! To add onto this, last task execution as a label or hover-over would be the icing on the cake. The majority of the time that my team is clicking through chain after chain is because we are determining if any tasks have failed, causing delays down the line. A labeled, or color coded tree indicating if any tasks have failed would be enormously helpful for quick diagnoses.

Excellent idea, YES YES YES.

I'm moving step by step from QlikView to QlikSense

In my very complex environment (severals hundreds tasks ) , QMC in QlikSense is so poor ....

 

Yes , i take it as soon as available !!

We're migrating from QlikView and the Task Overview in Sense is very poor.

Additionally, a seemingly easy step between a full tree view would be "Last Completion Time" in the task chaining pop up window within the QMC Task View. If we are trying to determine why an expected task hasn't run yet, but that task is dependent on 10 other tasks completing, knowing the last time each dependent task completed would really help in diagnosing chaining issues. All of this moving towards the same goal of better task monitoring/management within the QMC.
