What's new in Qlik Sense
Visualizations and dashboards
In a straight table, you can now add a mini chart to a table cell. This mini chart, called a Sparkline chart, is a small line chart that lets you measure across a second dimension.
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.
When using either the straight table or the pivot table, you can now set the size of the scrollbar, and you can highlight rows on hover.
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.
Filter pane enhancements
When using a filter pane, text can now be aligned left, right, or center, and users can copy values to their local clipboard.
You can now customize the color range when using color by measure or color by expression when using bar, line, and pie charts.
Custom Tooltip enhancements
Improved custom tooltip options:
- Tooltip support for line charts
- More information in tooltips for all charts
- Dynamic titles with expressions
- Support for expression modifiers: ALL and TOTAL
- Option to hide default rows
Data management, connectivity and integration
Dynamic views and ODAG improvements
Dynamic views now provide more information during refresh and have received significant performance improvements. The scripting required for dynamic views and ODAG has also been greatly simplified, and the amount of code needed for passing selections and making queries is now minimal.
Qlik Sense Desktop authentication against SaaS
You can now authenticate your Qlik Sense Desktop against SaaS editions, either Qlik Sense Business or Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS. Now, any user with creation rights on any edition of Qlik Sense can unlock Qlik Sense Desktop for local and offline users.
Qlik now offers license proxy authentication to simplify license management for customers. License proxy authentication provides a secure way of managing license authentication between QlikView and Qlik Sense deployments, and the Qlik Licensing Service. Qlik Licensing Service provides significant benefit by removing the need for customers to oversee the governance and compliance requirements.
