This change log describes the notable changes in functionality in each version of Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes.
See the release notes for information about bug fixes and limitations.
Custom tooltip improvements
You can now add title and descriptions to custom tooltips. Custom tooltips now support set expressions, expressions using total and charts with calculated dimensions. Custom tooltips are supported in snapshots.
See: Custom tooltips
You can now download stories as PDFs.
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.
See: Bullet chart
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.
See: Org chart
Cloud hub event notifications
You can receive notifications for events in the cloud hub, such as for when new apps are added to a space or when you are added to a space.
See: Notifications and subscriptions
Managing data sources in personal and shared spaces
You can add and manage data files and connections directly in personal and shared spaces.
See: Managing data sources in spaces
Custom tooltips are available for various charts. You can now customize the tooltip further by removing the default information to focus on any added measures.
See: Custom tooltips
Share bookmarks with others
You can copy links to bookmarks in Public or Community. You can also make your bookmarks public to other users in Public or Community.
See: Sharing links to bookmarks in cloud hubs
A new modifier for relative numbers has been added. It allows you to calculate percentages relative to a specific selection, relative to the total, or relative to a field value. You can change the basis upon which the relative number is calculated.
Sort by first measure in pivot tables
If you have more than one measure, a measure group is created. Sort by first measure will sort dimension values by the numeric value of the first measure. This sort order will affect all dimensions, and take precedence before any other sort order defined under the dimensions.
Save pivot layout state
You can create bookmarks with pivot table layout saved as expanded.
You can now create organization charts from data with a tree structure.
See: Org chart
Navigate Qlik Sense using the Prepare, Analyze, or Narrate tabs in the top toolbar.
You can share visualizations with your current selections with others by email using Qlik Sense.
Adding actions to sheets
You can add actions to sheets that trigger when users navigate to the sheets.
Conditional background layers
Map background layers can be switched on or off using calculation conditions.
See: Map properties
Custom map point symbols
In addition to standard shapes the user can now any add image in the point layer of a map chart. The point layer also supports the rotation of images.
See: Map properties
Custom tooltips are available for the bar chart, combo chart, map chart, pie chart, scatter plot, and the treemap. You can tailor the tooltip by adding any measure.
Deprecation of Share function
Sharing individual apps from your personal space using Share has been deprecated. Apps can be shared using shared spaces.
See: Sharing apps in the cloud hub
Download Sheet as PDF
Download entire Qlik Sense sheets as PDF files. You can configure size and layout.
Funnel chart enhancements
A new custom sort option is available for funnel charts. This feature is valuable when a user wants to model a less strict funnel.
See: Funnel chart
Improved action button
We have improved our action button with more styling options, including background color and image, label font size and color and border color, width, and radius. This was highly requested by our customers.
Line chart styling
The line chart has been improved with a number of new styling options. The lines can be individually styled per measure or for the whole chart.
- Line thickness
- Line style: solid or dashed
- Line curve: smooth or straight
- Vertical presentation
Map layer selection toggle
The content creator can now decide which layers should be selectable or not. This is convenient for layers holding background information.
See: Map properties
Moving average and difference
Νew modifiers are added to the bar chart, line chart, table, and combo chart. The new modifiers support full moving average and difference in steps.
Pivot table styling
Styling includes header font size and color, cell font size and color, text alignment and color of dimension values. Styling improves readability and gives users the power to create and customize the look and feel of Qlik Sense tables.
Table trend indicators
The straight table is being enhanced with graphical elements. The user can add conditional icons similar to the KPI object. Table indicators are useful for presenting trends and warning information and highlighting essential information.
Trend lines in charts
Trend lines are a powerful and commonly used tool in data analysis. You can now add different types of trend lines in bar charts and line charts.
See: Trend lines
Adding links in the cloud hub
Tenant administrators can now add links in the cloud hub. This enables you to add links to apps in other Qlik Sense deployments, webpages containing mashups, or other content relevant to cloud hub members.
See: Adding links in cloud hubs.
Dynamic views enable you to connect a base app to another app. Master visualizations from that app can then be used in the base app. This enables app creators to use master visualizations from the template app as dynamic charts in other apps.
See: Managing data with dynamic views.
Exclude map layers from auto-zoom
The ability to exclude map layers from auto zoom gives more layout control in the map chart. When building map applications, it is sometimes important to exclude layers from zoom, typically background layers such as grid layers, background/cad drawings, etc. The default behavior is to zoom out so all layers are visible.
See: Map properties.
Improved Accumulation in Bar chart, Line chart, Combo chart, and Table
- Short cut to accumulation on measures in UI with check box option
- Accumulation can be made over the whole dimension or in a finite number of steps
A new native chart also known by other names such as Marimekko chart, Mosaic plot or Mondrian diagram. This chart is commonly used in finance and marketing use cases.
Useful for showing how big the share is of different categories, e.g. sales per company, channel and combined; instead of having four regular bar charts, the Mekko can capture all the aspects.
See: Mekko chart.
QlikView apps in the cloud hub
You can now upload and access QlikView apps in the cloud hub. You can also share QlikView apps with other users by publishing in spaces.
See: QlikView in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Kubernetes.
This feature gives the app developer more control over the style, look and feel when creating tables, including:
- Header font size and color
- Cell font size and color
See: Table properties.
Natural language queries
You can now use natural language queries with Insight Advisor. 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.
