What’s new in Qlik Sense February 2019?

Usability Improvements

Single page application flow

Qlik Sense now has a single page application flow. You can move between Data, Analysis, and Story spaces without reloading the page. This creates fluid and natural navigation for end users and developers, with fewer clicks and faster time to insights.

Advanced Authoring

Dollar-sign expansion preview

The expression editor now provides a way to evaluate the results of calculations with dollar-sign expansions. Developers who use variables can see how these work in the context of an entire expression. This reduces the chances of having the wrong syntax in nested expressions.

Visualizations and Mapping

Visualization Bundle

Visualization bundle is a set of new charts:

  • Funnel chart: shows progression of a measure through stages.
  • Sankey chart: displays a measure as flow, and how the measure is divided into different categories in one or more stages.
  • Radar chart: shows a measure spread on polar chart with two category dimensions, one for the axes and one for areas.
  • Heat map chart: shows a matrix of color values with two dimensions and a measure.
  • Multi KPI: shows measures with more options and customizations than the standard KPI object.
  • Word cloud chart: highlights the most common occurrences in a text dimension.
  • Network chart: visualizes a graph with dimensions for nodes and parents and measures for link values.

Support for WMS in map background layers

Map charts can now use maps from third-party WMS servers as background layers. WMS background layers are added through a wizard interface, making configuring the WMS background easy.
