Vizlib Button for Qlik Sense: How do buttons improve the user experience?

Vizlib Button for Qlik Sense: How do buttons improve the user experience?



In the digital age, we want everything to happen easier and faster.  That includes the software we use. Software programmes are designed to save us time and simplify our jobs. Or at least that’s the idea. 


In the BI field, the design and functionality of a dashboard should facilitate quick and easy navigation and data exploration. Users expect a smooth process from inputting data to extracting valuable insights.


Some developers may remember the shift from text-based operating systems to the use of icons to run a programme. (It was seriously cool at the time, like Nirvana!) This evolution aligned software development with a key human need – visual communication. 


Typically, we understand and learn far quicker when information is portrayed in a visual medium. And in the context of analytics, this translates to visual analytics. 


Visual analytics, the method of exploring and analysing data visually, speeds up the end-user’s time to insights. And when developers simplify and standardise their visual dashboard elements, it becomes less daunting for end-users to navigate around the dashboard and extract valuable insights, without relying on high-level data professionals. 


One practical example of visual analytics is the use of buttons. Buttons help guide the end-user through their data analysis journey smoothly. 



What is Vizlib Button? 


Vizlib Button is a value-added capability for Qlik Sense that helps you create a more intuitive user experience.
