The waffle menu is your navigation anchor

Meet the new top-left “waffle” menu, your consistent navigation anchor throughout Qlik™ Cloud. This feature enhances findability by offering easy access to your “recent” assets, ensuring you always know where you are and where you can go next. Whether you’re diving into automation or exploring AutoML, the waffle menu is always within reach.

Activity centers, accessed through the new “waffle” menu in the top left, are designed for easier navigation, focusing on consuming insights and creating analytics, providing a consistent navigation anchor throughout the platform no matter what section you’re in, and self-service creation has been made easier with the enhanced “Create” page, which includes descriptions and in-line help to guide you through the process effortlessly, making your experience more intuitive and efficient.
In addition, when in a Qlik Sense™ application, page navigation has been moved to the left asset panel for better usability, accompanied by bookmarks and notes.
The new page grouping feature will also allow app creators to organize pages more efficiently, improving structure and accessibility.

An Activity Center tailored for your tasks

Brand new Activity Centers are now more activity and goal-driven, providing creators with upgraded tools and a comprehensive capabilities page. This streamlined space is designed to help you understand and optimize your efficiency without the clutter of unnecessary buttons.
Please note that the new Activity Center navigation enhancements may be on or off for a limited period of time, giving your organization time to become familiar with the new enhancements.

Key updates include new Activity Centers and enhancements to the main data integration page.
Plus, quick access to recently changed items and notifications ensures you stay up-to-date. Note that you can enable or disable the new Activity Center navigation enhancements for a limited time through the Management Console, giving your organization time to get up to speed and familiar with the new enhancements.

Customizable sheet navigation

Navigating through numerous sheets in an app can be daunting. The improved sheet navigation allows you to organize sheets into groups, making it easier to manage and publish them. You can now create, rename, delete, and publish groups and individual sheets, addressing one of Qlik™‘s most requested features.

Insight Advisor chat now helps without disruption

Qlik™ team has redesigned the Insight Advisor chat to improve usability, allowing you to get help without leaving your current context. This update makes it easier to author analyses and boosts awareness and usage of chat and search features as we roll out even more NLP capabilities.

Soon, Qlik™ will debut a new Data Integration ‘Home‘. It has taken the best of both worlds, combining the previous ‘Getting Started’ and ‘Home’ pages into a single, cohesive destination. It’s like having your favorite coffee shop and office rolled into one – everything you need, right where you want it. As you grow from novice to expert, you can customize your view, hiding the ‘Getting Started’ section when you’re ready. But don’t worry, this page will always remain your launchpad for all things Data Integration.

With quick access to your recent work and important notifications front and center, this is one ‘Home’ improvement you won’t want to miss!
