Vizlib Sheet Menu for Qlik Sense: A guided analytics experience

 

 

A Sheet Menu is an intuitive navigational element for data visualisation in Qlik Sense. It enables users to easily move between groups and sheets by creating menus that resemble website menus. 

This data visualisation tool focuses on a smooth, natural user experience (UX). It allows users to select multiple sheets and other features for greater interactivity. They can simplify and streamline navigation in their apps and sheets. It provides a guided analytics experience and is  an excellent alternative to mashups as it requires no coding

The UX focus extends to features like breadcrumbs that guide the user journey and help them see where they’ve come from in the app or website. You can be the hero that guides users out of the dark woods, towards bright, shiny insights with Sheet Menus.

How do businesses benefit from the Sheet Menu in different industries? 

 

Managers often use the Sheet Menu to personalise Qlik apps by adding branding and themes.

 

In Healthcare, organisations brand their apps to resemble the Electronic Health Record (EHR) system, helping to onboard users efficiently by using a familiar interface.

 

Retail companies are all about branding. They may use the Sheet Menu to brand their Qlik Sense apps with corporate theming guidelines. It also provides quick actions to jump to other relevant sheets within the app.

 

The Sheet Menu also features in High Tech companies. They’re used to pull together action buttons on a top menu for quickly switching between key systems like a Helpdesk or Sales Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application. 

 

Life Science companies can use it to brand their Qlik Sense apps with corporate theming guidelines. Or they may embed it in systems like Veeva to retain a familiar look and feel in the interface. 

 

Consumer Product companies always put branding first. They may also use the Sheet Menu to brand their Qlik Sense apps with their corporate themes.
