Working with Qlik Sense
Creating apps and visualizations
You can use the pivot table to dynamically change the presentation of the data and focus on areas of interest.
See: Pivot table
You use the KPI visualization to track performance. The KPI shows a main value, and, optionally, a complementary value.
Open apps without data
You can open an app without loading its data, for example when there are large amounts of data that would take long time to load.
You can change the thumbnail for a sheet to make it easier to distinguish it in the app overview.
Duplicate sheets from global menu
Using the global menu in app overview or sheet view, you can duplicate a sheet, regardless if you are editing or analyzing the sheet.
Edit sheets from shortcut menu
You can start editing a sheet simply by long-touching/right-clicking the sheet in app overview or in the sheet navigator.
Additional sheet details
The details for a sheet include information about when the sheet was published and updated, and by whom.
See: App overview
Date & time fields
You can now use date & time fields in visualizations. These fields are derived fields, which are defined by a calendar template in the data load script, and generated when the script is run. They appear in the assets panel.
Using data storytelling
Duplicate a slide
You can now duplicate a slide in a story.
Snapshots of maps
You can now take snapshots of maps.

You can now change the resize behavior (keep aspect ratio) of a snapshot. When you unlock the snapshot you enable it for a free resize which uses a progressive disclosure technique.
You can change the thumbnail for a story to make it easier to find it among other stories in the app overview.
Play stories from shortcut menu
You can start playing a story simply by right-clicking/long-touching the story in app overview or in the story navigator.
