Create a Cycle Group in Qlik Sense (without extensions)
Sense Cycle Field.qvf
One of the features that I miss from QlikView when working with Qlik Sense is the Cycle Group. Allowing the user to pick a dimension and have that update in all charts where it was used is incredibly useful.
To get around this I use a data island listing dimensions and a filter box to pick which dimension is to be used. This application demonstrates the technique, over some data from Grand Slam Tennis Tournaments.
There is a full description of how to create the application from the ground up, in this blog post:
I hope that you find this document useful. You will find other applications that I have uploaded under my profile on Qlik Community, or listed on my website here.
Note that the document and blog post have a fixed dimension label, as this was all that was possible at the time of writing. The ability to have dynamic labels has since been added, and you can create a label on the Master Dimension with this code:
This will then show the field name as the column title and as the label on any charts where it is used.
Also, the addition of variable extensions in the Extensions Bundle means that you can use this to pick your field, rather than a filter pane - which looks a little neater. The filter pane does allow you to add extra fields in the load script (perhaps from a spreadsheet).
