All about Qlik Sense June 2019

Qlik has delivered their first product releases since Qonnections, and the new versions contain some exciting items. After expanding their array of analysis tools in recent releases with the Dashboard and Visualization bundles, this release builds on those releases with some fine-tuning.

When it comes to authoring dashboards, it can be difficult to group charts together. Qlik has delivered the trellis container extension in the visualization bundle to help group similar charts. The trellis container is best used for showing the same chart for multiple dimensions providing a quick comparative analysis.

Included with the June 2019 release is a P&L pivot chart that easily displays financial data. The chart can be customized with a CSV file and contains an icon in the rightmost cell of the chart for exporting to Excel.

Qlik has also improved options for the bar chart, added a copy cell value to clipboard option, included an exploration menu for maps, and provided greater designing control when developing for smaller screens.

While this release doesn’t contain many back-end improvements, one notable item for Qlik Administrators is the inclusion of single sign-on support for Windows.

Qlik has also made behind the scenes improvements that set the stage for integrating the Qlik Data Catalyst to catalog a QVD library and provide data lineage. Solve will be diving further into the QDC in a future blog post.

A full list of features and enhancements can be found on the Qlik website.'
