What's new in Qlik Sense June 2020

Visualizations and dashboards

Sparkline chart

In a straight table, you can now add a mini chart to a table cell. This mini chart, called a Sparkline chart, is a small line chart that lets you measure across a second dimension.

Setting the Mini chart type

New bullet chart

The new bullet chart is a custom-built gauge for displaying KPIs. The new bullet chart has extended customization and improved functionality. The new bullet chart replaces the bullet chart that was previously included as part of the visualization bundle.

Table customization

When using either the straight table or the pivot table, you can now set the size of the scrollbar, and you can highlight rows on hover.

Org chart enhancements

It is now easier to interact with Org charts with improvements such as a home button, border color options, and automatic resizing.

Custom Tooltip enhancements

Improved custom tooltip options:

  • Tooltip support for line charts
  • More information in tooltips for all charts
  • Dynamic titles with expressions
  • Support for expression modifiers: ALL and TOTAL

Data management, connectivity and integration

Dynamic views and ODAG improvements

Dynamic views now provide more information during refresh and have received significant performance improvements. The scripting required for dynamic views and ODAG has also been greatly simplified, and the amount of code needed for passing selections and making queries is now minimal.

Creating an on-demand template app

Qlik Sense Desktop authentication against SaaS

You can now authenticate your Qlik Sense Desktop against SaaS editions, either Qlik Sense Business or Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS. Now, any user with creation rights on any edition of Qlik Sense can unlock Qlik Sense Desktop for local and offline users.

Authenticating against Qlik Sense Cloud

Administration improvements

Qlik Management Console improvements

Improved accessibility by exposing custom filter capabilities on the Qlik Management Console landing page, which enables the user to save table views as custom filters, providing the ability to easily select how to best present a table.

Managing custom filters in table views

Licensing improvements

Qlik now offers license proxy authentication to simplify license management for customers. License proxy authentication provides a secure way of managing license authentication between QlikView and Qlik Sense deployments, and the Qlik Licensing Service. Qlik Licensing Service provides significant benefit by removing the need for customers to oversee the governance and compliance requirements.
