What's new in Qlik Sense May 2021
Insight Advisor Chat improvements
In this release, we have made several enhancements to Insight Advisor Chat including improved narratives in question responses, a refined UI for question parsing, and more intelligent app selections when responding to questions.
Insight Advisor Search
We have made several improvements to our search-based analysis within Qlik Sense apps, including:
Analysis of change over time – Insight Advisor will now generate multiple charts for a single analysis type, such as responding with analysis of data between two date periods through a combination of charts.
Natural language generation (NLG) – Visual charts generated by Insight Advisor Search now have a new option to view narrative insights and interpretations of the data.
A new capability to embed and play videos directly in Qlik Sense apps.
Active chart and grid dimensions
Enhanced capabilities added to grid dimensions for your visualizations, which helps better identify chart location and associated dimensions on the design canvas. There is a new indicator on the bottom right side of an object which contains these added dimensions and coordinates when moving or resizing chart objects on your design canvas.
New and improved combo chart
An improved combo chart is now available, with enhanced functionality including support for vertical presentation, reference lines based on measures and dimensions, and line and bar styling.
New Databricks ODBC Connector
To support the growing popularity of Databricks, a Qlik strategic partner, Qlik Sense now includes a pre-configured connector for Databricks, including the new Spark 3.0 engine. Utilizing the Databricks SQL Analytics service, the Databricks Connector enables Qlik Sense users to easily include data in Databricks to gain a comprehensive view of their business as well as generate new insights and data-driven actions.
New Azure Synapse Connector
