What’s new in Qlik Sense June 2019?

Advanced Authoring

Copy value to clipboard

With Qlik Sense June 2019 you can now copy values to clipboard from tables. This improvement will reduce several steps and increase productivity when reusing values from a Qlik Sense application.

Grid layout on mobile devices

Qlik Sense app developers can choose the rendering layout for sheets on small screens, such as tablets and mobile phones. List view remains the default option, and only shows the visualization titles. The new Grid view shows a small preview of your visualizations, and reduces the amount of white space. This gives developers more flexibility and control over how apps designed for mobile are displayed.

Native container object

The container object extension was first released as part of the Dashboard bundle, and was very well received for the flexibility it adds to a Qlik Sense application sheet space. The Qlik Sense June 2019 release brings the first ever release of a native Container object, providing the existing functionality from the extension, while adding better integration capabilities with other authoring actions. This first release of the native container object will not support Qlik NPrinting, but this is planned for future releases.

With the release of the native container object, current applications using the existing extension objects will continue to work as before but the two Container Object extensions available in the Dashboard bundle will no longer be listed as new object options for applications.

Push notifications to Qlik Sense Mobile

With the June release, Qlik Sense Mobile for iOS and Android introduce support for native mobile push notifications. Administrators can push system notifications to their users from the Qlik Management Console. Notifications can be sent to all users, or to specific subsets of users, and can include a link into a dashboard. System notifications can be useful to inform users about updates to dashboard, or to announce system events.
