Vizlib August Round-up 2023

Vizlib August Round-up 2023

Welcome to Vizlib’s August Round-up, your one-stop-shop for all of our latest features, blogs, news, and events.

Great news – all of the updates featured in this round-up are readily-tested and compatible with the most up-to-date version of Qlik Sense, so you can enjoy them right away!

Watch the August Round-up highlights here 👇

Container Grid 

The Vizlib Container Grid enhances upon Qlik’s Container by enabling multiple elements on a single container page.

You can also nest containers. For example, say you want to create a Container Grid with three columns while subdividing the right one into three segments for your KPIs.

Firstly, create a Vizlib Container Grid, dividing it horizontally into thirds by selecting the predefined layout and inserting KPI master items into the empty segments. After updating the appearance, save it as a master item.

Next, select the final Container Grid layout with the three columns, placing elements in the middle and left columns. In the right column,  assign the pre-made container.

This approach saves dashboard space and simplifies the user experience.

Vizlib Self-Service

Data exploration

Self-Service has lots of exciting updates this month! You can now use wildcards for flexible searches. Employ a question mark for a single character or a star (*) for multiple characters, streamlining the search for specific dimensions and measures.

We’ve also enhanced the Analytics Search feature, which now supports multiple rows. Activate this option, and the search bar automatically expands vertically as more items are added. 

When working with extensive data in Custom Report, a new feature allows you to choose whether to update the layout immediately or defer it until you’ve completed your selections. This ensures a more fluid analytical experience.

Finally, the Toolbar has received even more enhancements. We now allow customization of the slide-in appearance, so you can chose colours and fonts that align with your chosen theme and branding.

Vizlib Collaboration

Writeback table and input form

It’s now possible to wrap the header text in Spreadsheet mode. We’ve also updated the Live Totals feature, which has been further expanded to include the computation of averages.

For both the Writeback Table and Input Form, you can now revert to the default colour setup in just one click. We’ve also noticed that some customers accidentally use local destinations even when they have Vizlib Server– it is now possible to restrict what destinations are available.

Vizlib Gantt

Vertical reference line

For multinational companies, keeping track of time zones is important. This is where you can use the Vizlib Gantt’s Vertical Reference Line.

The Highlight Current Date feature shows you the time determined by your computer’s timezone. However, by using the Qlik function LocalTime(), you can set up multiple reference lines or variable reference lines based on the location selected using the filter. You can even account for the plus (+) or minus (-) in a timezone by using the Vizlib Slider.

You can find the example below in our Demo app gallery.
