Vizlib Round-up for November 2021

Welcome to the Vizlib Round-up for November 2021! All updates are compatible and readily tested with the most up-to-date version of Qlik Sense.

Watch our November Round-up Highlights here 👇

Vizlib Ridgeline Plot v2.2.0

Get extra context and focus with Ridgeline Plot

The Vizlib Ridgeline Plot is an excellent chart choice for visualising trends or changes across several groups and times. Mountain ridge shapes overlay to create powerful visual comparisons and save dashboard space for users.

With v2.2.0, the new enhancements enable you to zoom in and concentrate on specific parts of the chart – to see the wider context of the data, and hone in on the key data points.

Vizlib Writeback Table & Vizlib Form v3.6.0

Guided collaboration for improved accuracy

Vizlib delivers a comprehensive full-cycle collaboration layer for Qlik. However, a common issue with input forms is that they quickly become too long or complex ⁠– drop-offs can increase while accuracy decreases.

Enhancements to Vizlib Input Form and Writeback Table deliver guided tooltips and help options fields, and allow you to divide forms into bite-size chunks. This delivers many more use cases, deeper insight from surveys, and higher accuracy thanks to in-form guides.

Vizlib Gantt v2.2.0

Easier project navigation

Your projects are demanding and complex by nature. The ability to navigate and visualise within Vizlib Gantt just got easier.

New search and suggested search functions get you to a specific event or range of events quicker. And with horizontal and vertical scrolling within date ranges you can spend your time focused on what matters, driving your projects forward.

Product spotlight: Vizlib Toolbar

Get even more dashboard control with Vizlib Toolbar, included in Self-Service!

Place the toolbar on the side of your Qlik Sense dashboard with the nifty slide-in function for ease of use. Or let it float on top of your app – it’s your choice.

Either way, you’ll save valuable dashboard space and have less clutter to navigate through!

Demo App Spotlight

By combining Vizlib KPI Designer and Qlik GeoAnalytics, this app can help medical practitioners easily visualise treatments. You can select various body parts to view different stats, or use the lasso tool to group the desired areas.

Explore wine varieties, prices, ratings, and more in this interactive Vizlib Library and Self-Service dashboard.

This app was created for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Every object in the Container Box is controlled by the Viztip calculation and designed with the KPI Designer for greater creative freedom.

Vizlib War is a fun app that showcases the combined power of Vizlib Library, Self-Service, and Collaboration for Qlik Sense.

Must-watch on-demand webinars

Hosted by Liron Baram, this webinar demonstrated how to set up and use advanced analytics to predict and plan for success, even during uncertain times!
