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.

See: Modifiers

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.

See: Sorting by first measure

Save pivot layout state

You can create bookmarks with pivot table layout saved as expanded.

See: Saving pivot table state

Org chart

You can now create organization charts from data with a tree structure.

Conditional background layers

Map background layers can be switched on or off using calculation conditions.

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

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

See: Line chart properties

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.

See: Modifiers

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.

See: Pivot table properties

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.

See: Table

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

December 2019

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

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.

November 2019

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

Mekko chart

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.

Table styling

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.

October 2019

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.

See: Creating visualizations from your data using Insights.
