It’s been a while since I last blogged. I have been busy with many projects and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find the time to blog. But as promised in my previous few blogs, I decided to make the time and share our son, Aaron’s, #DataLiteracy journey.Read More »
Another sleepless night and another extension (or 2.. see the Score Card extension details below)! Ability to display a process flow/steps is something I missed in Qlik Sense. Yes, you can build multiple visualisations and put them in certain order to create a process flow but that uses up the screen space and do not […]
I have been working on a Data Literacy project with my 6 year year old son the past few weeks (I will cover that topic another time). I wanted to make the charts more relatable for him. To get him to engage with the data side, I found myself developing a few extensions. The project […]
I am happy to announce that I have my new personal project on Qlik Branch after finally managed to make some time for it. The few hours I have spent on this resulted in a variable management solution (or the first part of it!). UPDATE: New download “Data Load Script” option added
This was my first visit to the Qonnections, thanks to the Tahola team for arranging the trip and inviting me to join. Being a fairly frequent tech show goer, I thought I knew what to expect and what I will see there. But boy, was I in for a surprise, Qlik team went an extra […]
Qlik Sense is a great platform, however, it has its shortfalls. One of them would be the lack of push notifications out of the box from QMC. Last year, I worked on a few solutions to send alerts via emails to users’ inboxes and via APIs/webhooks to bespoke applications when there is a job failure on Qlik Sense Enterprise. I have utilised the QRS API as well as REST connector and webhook technologies to achieve all these goals. That got me thinking, what else can be done using webhook? At Tahola, we (the developers, consultants) use Microsoft Teams as part of our collaboration suite. I thought it would be a good idea to be able to send alerts to the Teams channel directly from Qlik data load scripts (via REST connector), whether be a load completion alert or just a simple KPI summary table from the data model. So, I spent few hours building a PoC Qlik application to that goal, and thought, I should share the concept with others as it might be useful in some scenarios.Read More »
Finally, I have found time to create a new home for my blogs. I am slowly migrating my blogs from other places to here in an attempt to host them in one place.
