Q-Tip #20 – Showing All Values in Qlik Sense

Those of us old enough to have used QlikView will remember a feature that allows showing all dimension values in a chart, even if there were zeroes or no data for those values. In Qlik Sense, unfortunately, there is no such feature. After a bit of tinkering, though, I found a solution for this. And […]

Q-Tip # 19 – Insights, Anyone?

Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning – these buzzwords are now all over the press, the Internet and social media. In the process of outsourcing everything possible, we are now actively outsourcing human intelligence, replacing it with machines. Oh wait, that sounded wrong. Perhaps we are just trying to make our work easier and more productive, constantly […]

Q-Tip #18 – Variables, Master Items, and The Little Things That Make Us Smile

If you’re like me, you probably manage your expressions in variables that you store in an external variables table rather than defining them directly in the Data Load Editor.

It’s been a while since I had a chance to write a blog article… I can’t complain though, because preparing and delivering the Masters Summit for Qlik in Munich was a lot of fun. I also took a few days off and jumped to Prague, which was awesome! Interesting discovery (at least to myself) – in Prague, […]

Q-Tip #16 – What’s Special About Those Derived Fields

Ever since the introduction of Derived Fields in Qlik Sense, I was curious – what’s so special about them? Are they different from any other fields that are stored in your data set? Are they stored or calculated on the fly? Do they work equally well in Chart dimensions, in Filters, and in Set Analysis […]

Q-Tip #15 – Excluding the Excluded

It’s been a while since I found an interesting topic, worthy of a blog article… This Q-Tip originated from a question that we received at the Masters Summit for Qlik in Ausitn, TX. Here is the question:   Hmm… at first I was puzzled and couldn’t even come up with a direction for the possible […]

Q-Tip #13 Happy New Year, New Calendar Functions, and New Behaviors!

Apologies to my blog followers for a long period of silence. Needless to say, I’ve been busy – among other things, working on converting our Masters Summit for QlikView into all new, freshly re-designed Masters Summit for Qlik.
