Natural Language Analytics
A new NLP (natural language processing) capability in the Qlik Cognitive Engine that supports natural language search and interaction in Qlik Sense. As users engage with Insight Advisor, they are now able to enter search criteria using full natural language. The Qlik Cognitive Engine parses the search string to understand the user’s intent and provide the right data and insights based on search criteria. Going forward, natural language interaction will be available in other areas of Qlik Sense as well.
Default Landing Sheets
Building upon the ability to apply predefined selections when a user opens a Qlik Sense application, Qlik Sense September 2019 enables developers to choose a landing sheet to direct the user to a specific sheet. This action can be combined with predefined selections to provide the desired focal point in the analysis process for users, which enhances the Guided Analytics experience in Qilk Sense.
Increased Search Limit on Filter Panes
The limit of search values on a filter pane has been increased to 5,000 characters, allowing more values to be selected in bulk. Previously, search values on a filter pane had a limit of 255 characters, which prevented users from copying and pasting a large number of distinct values to apply selections on a field.
This feature provides a fast and efficient way to promote a dimension or measure created in an object to a master item. With this capability, application creators have a better workflow when creating and testing expressions that will be later used across the entire application, increasing productivity and driving reuse.
Visualizations and Mapping
The map chart now features a new option to show your location. A new button allows users to fetch their location from the device being used when the button is clicked, it then adds an icon to the map, and zooms to the user’s current location. Users can now perform location-based search using the circle select, which delivers value in mobile and field use cases. Due to security reasons, the Qlik Sense Mobile app for iOS currently does not support this feature. This functionality can however be accessed through the mobile browser on iOS.
Variance Waterfall Chart
The Variance Waterfall is a new chart in the visualization bundle that provides variance analysis between two measures shown over the different values of a dimension. This type of chart is typically used in financial actual versus forecast analysis. This highly requested chart type provides a more robust financial charting option and fills an important gap for financial analysis.
Pie chart styling
This release features new styling options for the pie chart in the same fashion as the bar chart. These include the ability to tune the pie chart outline width, color, corner radius and inner radius, which gives the user a variety of options to improve the style, look, and feel of the chart. This helps customers moving from QlikView to Qlik Sense and reduces the need for mashup and extension development.
