Augmented analytics

Insight Advisor is no longer available with Qlik Sense Desktop

Insight Advisor, including business logic, is no longer supported with Qlik Sense Desktop. In November 2022, Insight Advisor will be upgraded to a new experience. This will only be available on Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows. Users who want to continue using Insight Advisor and Business Logic on Qlik Sense Desktop should not upgrade to August 2022.

Chart level scripting

Chart level scripting is a powerful feature that allows you to modify the dynamic dataset behind a chart using a subset of the Qlik scripting language, with techniques such as variables and loops. You can add or modify rows and columns that were not in the original dataset. This allows for calculations in chart expressions that were previously not possible, such as simulations or goal-seeking.

Visualizations and dashboards

Styling panel for bar and pie charts

App developers can now style the font used for titles, subtitles, and footnotes in bar and pie charts, giving them more options for customizing their visualizations. A new General tab provides options to change the font type, size, color, and emphasis. The Chart tab controls styling of the bars in the bar chart and the styling of slices in pie charts.

New chart and script functions to support JSON

New functions have been introduced to support the testing, validation, and modification of JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) data: IsJson, JsonGet, JsonSet.

String functions

New inner and outer set expressions in set analysis

Outer set expressions simplify governance of Qlik Sense applications. It is particularly helpful when working with complex master measures that come in different flavors of one base measure.

You can now use set expressions to tweak the base master measure, for example {<Year={2021}>} [Master Measure].
