Chapter 16 Developing Visualizations in Qlik Sense

In this chapter, we will continue exploring Qlik Sense and describe the basics of developing applications in Qlik Sense. We will also demonstrate how to prepare a Qlik Sense self-service environment for users.

We will develop a Qlik Sense Sales Analysis app that is somewhat similar to the QlikView Sales Analysis Dashboard that we developed in Chapter 4. In the process, we will introduce the following concepts:

  • Exploring the chart types available out-of-the-box in Qlik Sense
  • Using and building the library of reusable objects
  • Placing and resizing objects on a grid
  • Navigating object properties
  • Managing selections in Qlik Sense
  • Creating and using stories (Storytelling)
  • Developing geo-visualizations in Qlik Sense
  • Integrating Qlik Sense apps

Exploring the Qlik Sense Visual Environment

Qlik Sense was developed as an intuitive self-explanatory tool for non-technical users, so not every step in the process may need to be described in a great detail. We encourage you to navigate the tool on your own and discover additional features when you perform our simple exercises.
