    Variables for selections

    Sohail M

      Hello All,


      I want to know if i can store selections in a variable using Qliksense? For example i want to make few selections in the applications and store those selections in a variable called v1 and then make few other selections and store in variable v2. Do you think this is possible to do so? I don't want to use bookmarks as that is one of the requirements from business.


      Thanks for the help!!!

          You can probably use GetCurrentSelection() or a similar system function to retrieve the current selection and then store the output to a variable, the bigger issue would be how to restore the selection from the variable.


          May I ask why you or business don't want to use bookmarks?

              Hi Swuehl,


              We are doing a POC and comparing BI tools. So, one of the use case is to save, retrieve, delete and modify selections made by user without using bookmark object. I know bookmark object can easily fulfill this requirement but business does not want to do so.


              Do you think there's a work around for it?
