Qlik™ is happy to announce the next version of client-managed analytics offering, Qlik Sense™ February 2024. This version includes improvements primarily focused on new visualizations, formatting and functionality, additional SaaS connectors, and scripting improvements.

Visualizations & Dashboards

New Pivot Table

The new pivot table is coming with a set of new features:

  • Dimension headers
  • Null value custom symbol, foreground, and background color
  • Grid styling with width and color
  • Font styling for size, color and family for headers and cell contents
  • Totals styling and placement options: above or below
  • Column width options, set to auto, in pixels or with percentage
  • Scrollbars outside chart
  • Interactive sort of dimensions

All the above are designed and added based on feedback from Qlik™ users. The new Pivot table is launched in the Visualization bundle and will replace native pivot next year when additional features are added.

New Layout Container

The Layout container is a new component in the Dashboard bundle. In the Layout container, charts can be placed in a freeform manner with or without a snapping grid. Charts can overlap, be stacked, and controlled with show conditions. The Layout container is highly versatile but especially useful for:

  • Grouping charts together
  • Combining charts into new visualizations
  • Creating composite KPIs
  • Grouping and reusing user controls and buttons
  • Creating aesthetic pleasing dashboards

New Borders and Shadows

As of today, most charts receive settings for borders and shadows. Charts inherit the border setting from the theme, but the border width and color setting can now be overridden and customized per chart. The border can play a big role in how your dashboard is perceived, use it wisely to achieve your goals, especially when layering multiple charts!

Chart shadow is a new property on charts, providing a shadow contour around the chart, with options for size and color. Shadows create a depth effect and can be used to highlight and make certain elements stand out.

New Copy and Paste Style Option for Charts

This new chart feature makes life easier when creating a uniformed look across multiple charts! A simple copy and paste functionality now allow you to copy all a chart’s specific style attributes and paste those same attributes onto a separate chart, eliminating the need for tweaking each setting to ensure images are a match!

Styling Grid, Funnel & Sankey Charts

The Grid chart, Funnel chart, and the Sankey chart have been upgraded with the new property panel for styling. The styling includes general settings for title, subtitle, footnote, background, border and shadow and chart specific settings for axis and value labels.


Additional SaaS Application Connectors

Qlik™ continues to expand Qlik™ Cloud Data Integration connectivity with a new set of connectors that has just been released. These connectors will allow you to bring together business data from multiple applications that focus on supply chain, ERP, CRM and finance:

  • Acumatica ERP
  • GitHub
  • QuickBooks
  • SAP Ariba
  • SAP Cloud for Customer
  • SAP Fieldglass
  • SAP SuccessFactors Payroll
  • Stripe
  • Zoho Books
  • Zoho CRM
  • Zoho Expense
  • Zoho Inventory

Qlik™ also updated the existing Oracle OPERA connector to support change data capture.

Like previous versions of Qlik™ connectors, these connectors are generally available (GA), are covered by standard Qlik™ support policies, and are labeled as Preview. If you haven’t already done so, you will need to contact your local support representative to activate the feature flag that enables all these connectors in your tenant. The preview tag and feature flag are there because these connectors do not cover all use cases and we want to make sure you have the best experience possible.

Insight Advisor

Improved Tooltip for Period over Period Analysis

An improved tooltip is now available for Insight Advisor’s period over period analysis type feature, helping guide end-users to create a new calendar period for their Qlik Sense™ App (when needed).

Hub & Engine

Data window functions in engine load script

Users can now perform complex calculations on their data tables in the Qlik™ load script to perform aggregation on different partitions without losing the granularity of their data. This functionality is commonly used in SQL and with many ML data preparation use cases.
