Welcome to the Vizlib Round-up for March 2022! All updates are compatible and readily tested with the most up-to-date version of Qlik Sense.

Watch our March Round-up Highlights here 👇


Vizlib Library

Vizlib Grid Chart Released!

Introducing Vizlib Grid Chart – a brand new Library extension! This chart is an upgrade to the popular Vizlib Heatmap. You can now visualise your data as either a grid chart or heatmap that adds another layer of context by adding a second KPI to the chart.

In addition to increased performance and usability, Vizlib Grid Chart’s advanced editing capabilities enable you to customise your Grid Chart, ensuring you keep your Qlik apps on brand.

Vizlib Flow Chart Released!

And we’ve added another brand new chart to the Vizlib Library family! Vizlib Flow Chart is the perfect way to visualise processes and highlight bottlenecks and drop-offs. It will help you get a more real-life visualisation of the process and flow of data between different dimensions.

As the next-generation upgrade for the Vizlib Sankey Chart, Flow Chart includes improvements in performance, design, and usability.

By using the Defer Layout Update, you can make your selections without any requests being sent to the Qlik engine. Once you are done, simply press the update button to see your visualisation.
