This year has been another strange year for sure. Covid continues to cause disruptions all around the world, we have gotten used to the reality of swapping our sunny holiday destinations for a tent in our back garden, panic buying became a quarterly trend (remember this?) and we learnt to go for weeks without seeing our loved ones. But in the midst of it all, there were some positives.Continue reading “Introducing SnapChart – from picture to data visualisation”
Data entry with Airtable in Qlik Sense
It has been a while since I last posted. Between coaching, playing cricket and work, I haven’t found much free time this summer to blog. But now that sunny summer days are behind us, I thought I would pick up the pen (well, keyboard in this case) and share some of my ideas.
This year has been a busy year for Qlik. Qlik Sense SaaS is adding new features quicker than I can keep up with. It’s great news for all the fellow Qlikies out there. It’s no surprise that past 12 months I have been busy with SaaS and hybrid deployments to help our clients with their SaaS journey.
For all the new features in Qlik Sense SaaS, there are times when businesses demand more of the platform. And today, I would like to look at one of those use cases, which involves integration with Airtable using a simple Qlik Sense extension from yours truly!Continue reading “Data entry with Airtable in Qlik Sense”
Qlik Sense site uptime via Power Automate
Nearly a year ago, I blogged about using Power Automate from Qlik Sense to send notifications to Teams channel and send emails. This time I would like to explore a different area, how to use Power Automate to monitor your Qlik Sense Proxy Service (QPS) availability and send notifications when it’s not accessible.Continue reading “Qlik Sense site uptime via Power Automate”
Watermark in Qlik Sense
Most QlikView developers are familiar with adding watermarks to charts/objects. In Qlik Sense, it’s not something you can do with the out of the box options. However, this is achievable relatively simply with the use of some CSS. There are couple of ways we can do this and in this blog post, I aim to take you through those methods.Continue reading “Watermark in Qlik Sense”
Qlik Sense User Selections Log
It’s been a while since I last posted here. Splitting my spare time in between Kids in Data, Data on the rocks and recent addition of Data literacy geek project, sadly left me with not much spare time to give this place much love that it needs. Today I aim to remedy this and share how to capture user selections in Qlik Sense Enterprise for Windows using logs and report on it.Continue reading “Qlik Sense User Selections Log”
Hands-on with SenseTheme Premium for Qlik Sense
Since the launch of Kids in Data, I have had very little time left for my blog and feel that I am not sharing the exciting things that are taking place in the Qlik ecosystem. I want to change that today and share a must have tool for all Qlik developers – SenseTheme.Continue reading “Hands-on with SenseTheme Premium for Qlik Sense”
Process step container (stepper) v2
This year has been another great year for the Qlik enthusiasts, with every new release of Qlik Sense, we saw a number of new exciting features added to the product. It is now a good time to look back at some of my old extensions and give them the attention they deserve. First up, the process step container which I originally developed for the data literacy project (which has now evolved into Kids in Data). This is also a story of collaboration in the Qlik community and helping others.Continue reading “Process step container (stepper) v2”
Qlik Sense Mashup – Dev Hub
Lego is the building blocks that bring our imagination to life. Like Lego, Qlik provides many of the building blocks that bring our BI needs to reality.
I look at Qlik Sense as a collection of building blocks. These building blocks make Qlik Sense a modern BI platform. Qlik Sense dev hub is a member of these blocks. Today, in my third blog of the mashup series, we will look at some of the features of the dev hub and how these features help build a better BI solution.Continue reading “Qlik Sense Mashup – Dev Hub”
Qlik Sense Alert 2 – MS Teams + Power Automate
Nearly a year ago, I wrote about sending alerts to Microsoft Teams channel using Qlik load script and REST connector. With the coronavirus sweeping through the world, forcing people in lock-downs, we are seeing surge in the use of collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams. So, I wanted to expand on this further and send a HTML table as notification to MS Teams channel and send emails using Microsoft Power Automate (Previously known as Flow) to help people get the notifications quicker.Continue reading “Qlik Sense Alert 2 – MS Teams + Power Automate”
Qlik Sense Mashup – Identity
Today, in this “Qlik Sense Mashup” blog series, I will be exploring another simple concept and add to the context covered in my previous post of this series.
In my first post of this series, I showed how easily we can embed Qlik Sense visualisations to any HTML page. This time we will expand on this idea and look at Identity feature of embedded analytics.Continue reading “Qlik Sense Mashup – Identity”
