QS: Horizontal Filter Pane

Hello everyone,

in QlikView it was possible to arrange a listbox horizontally to display a calendar year or the calendar months.

Unfortunately Qlik Sense does not offer this possibility, only with the help of extensions. But this function should become a standard function of the filter box.

Thanks

If possible, I would like to see this as an option of the already existing filter pane.
In case the end user is on a phone/small screen, I would like to see it going automatically back to the current filter pane, in order to optimize space

Yes, it should be an extension of the existing filter pane and not a new filter box.

I second this proposal, especially since the last free version of the Climber selection pane is not working properly anymore after the June 2020 release.

Our end users are used to selecting dates and periods this way, since the date picker is horrible.

I converted a QV app this week with these list boxes and the filter pane result was far from perfect. I hope it is an easy R&D task to provide the suggested enhancement.

Why are we still waiting for this simple feature? It will boost the user experience significantly

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.

Horizontal filter panes works best for dimensions with few values like Months or Quarters. A partial workaround is to set the filter to one grid high and use the label to so it looks a button row:

=concat(distinct Year, ' | ', Year)

Indeed, nearly ALL of our dashboards contain horizontal filters, at least for date values.
For the moment, we are forced to use extensions for this, which brings issues at every upgrade.

Please, could you update the default filter pane to have the possibility to show the values horizontally (with a number limit that can be set, e.g. show horizontally when max N values, else show vertically)

Note: The workaround allows to show the values, but does not show the Green-Grey associative colors, nor does it allow to select directly on the values...

Agreed. I tried the suggestion out and it lacks polish !

Agreed. Also there should be Toggle selection option available in filter pane with radio and check boxes without compulsion of enabling "Always one select one" option.

It is very useful for dimensions  like Year, Quarter, Month to display horizontal list.
