Add Export Data to Vizlib Actions



A small step for Vizlib, a huge one for every Qlik Sense user. Introducing “Export Data” to our Vizlib Actions. Define a set of dimensions & measures, and dynamically export your data set with the click of a button. No need to pre-design calculation expensive tables, or a chart – export only the data you need, as many columns and rows as you want. We understand your need for speed.



Vizlib Sheet Menu v1.10.0


We have updated the Sheet menu for you!  Now you can view the Vizlib Calendar in expanded mode! You may need to make a few size adjustments to get the full expanded view of the Vizlib Calendar. Plus, we’ve added an option for “no sheet” in sheet link. So now you can continue using top menu buttons (paired with Vizlib Actions) without having to navigate to another sheet!
