Vizlib Round-up May 2022

Vizlib Round-up May 2022

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

Watch our May Round-up Highlights here 👇

Vizlib Collaboration

More flexibility with Writeback

Avoid unwanted duplicates and take full control of how data is connected.

With Key Columns, it is now easy to specify which columns should be used to identify rows during ‘update’ and ‘delete’ operations, such as editing the name of a product or customer.

Previously, if a user didn’t have access to the destination then the table wasn’t shown. Now, your Vizlib Writeback Table or Input Form can be set to ‘read-only’,’ giving collaborators a view of that data.

Interactive sorting and search can now be turned off in the settings, which is useful for larger data sets or if a table needs to stay sorted in a certain way in order to make sense.

Vizlib Library

Pivot Table Setup Wizard Improvements

The Pivot Table Wizard has a brand new design. It’s now easier for users and developers to see which fields are used in the table.

The Pivot Table Wizard provides users with an intuitive way to create and modify pivot tables to match their business questions. And all users can modify a pivot table display using the wizard without going into edit mode.

Vizlib Finance

Formatted Excel report scheduling

With Vizlib Server, it is now possible to schedule Finance Report distribution. Set up the task in the Vizlib Management Console (VMC) with any selected reductions. The export of a fully formatted Excel file can be made to email and sent via Slack, making your monthly or weekly report process much easier.

Vizlib Gantt

Reference Lines

The Pivot Table Wizard has a brand new design. It’s now easier for developers to create the Pivot Table, and simpler for users to see which fields are used in the table.

A Reference Line on the Vizlib Gantt is presented on top of all Vizlib Gantt elements, presenting a static reference line that appears over all dimension levels for a smoother guided user experience.

Demo App Spotlight

View your entire product logistics manufacturing process with the Retail Logistics app, which combines Vizlib Collaboration and Self-Service for Qlik.

If Tony Stark used Qlik + Vizlib, it would probably look something like this.
