What’s new in Qlik Sense June 2019?

 

Qlik NPrinting is a reporting platform that lets you create reports using your QlikView and Qlik Sense data, and then distribute them automatically in a range of standard formats.

Features

Qlik NPrinting has a responsive web interface for administrative tasks and report design. A centralized distribution system simplifies scheduled report generation and distribution. Users can access and subscribe to a complete set of reports. You can share knowledge and analyze data across your organization and beyond.

Qlik NPrinting offers:

  • Scheduled and one-time distribution of reports to the Qlik Sense hub.
  • Server-based client for configuring, scheduling, and distributing reports.
  • Online subscription portal for users to view, download, archive, and subscribe to available reports.
  • Roles-based security at the app level for administrators, developers, and recipients.
  • Enterprise scalability and security: Multi-engine enterprise scalability, and enhanced governance and security.
  • Full Microsoft Office integration.

How does Qlik NPrinting work?

Qlik NPrinting generates reports based on templates created by you, or on QlikView and Qlik Sense entities. You can deliver reports at scheduled times or when they are requested by individual users. Final reports are static files that contain copies of the original QlikView and Qlik Sense data as it was at the time the report was generated.

Qlik NPrinting can distribute the workload across multiple multi-threaded engines to ensure high availability and fast performance. All metadata is saved in a database system that makes it easy to manage backups, and allows multiple developers to work concurrently.

Qlik NPrinting apps

Qlik NPrinting apps contain the entities that you create, such as filters, connections, or reports.

Collaboration and mobility

The Qlik NPrinting repository is stored in a database so that multiple developers can work on your reporting system at the same time. The web interface is responsive, so recipients can open their reports on mobile devices as well as desktop computers. You can embed HTML reports into emails, so that recipients can make data-based decisions directly.

NewsStand

The NewsStand web portal is the main repository where recipients access their authorized reports. They can view old versions of reports, and request that new reports be generated at their convenience. They can download reports in any of the available formats and create custom schedules for report updates.

Deploying Qlik NPrinting

There are three components to deploy:

  • Qlik NPrinting Server: the central node in your reporting system. It is composed of the scheduler, the web engine, and the repository. The server manages user administration, security, and all other server-side tasks. It also also coordinates multiple reporting engines installed on different nodes to distribute the workload.
  • Qlik NPrinting Engine: creates reports based on information from the scheduler. At least one engine must be installed. You can install additional engines on other computers to increase the workload capacity and the availability of your reporting system.
  • Qlik NPrinting Designer: Windows-based software that is only installed on the computers of developers who create and modify reports. You can launch it from the Qlik NPrinting web console.

Administering and managing a Qlik NPrinting site

You can configure, manage, and monitor your reporting system in an easy and intuitive way. You can manage engines, check their status, create and schedule new reports, manage users and security roles, and many other activities.

What’s new in Qlik Sense June 2019

Advanced Authoring
Copy value to clipboard

With Qlik Sense June 2019 you can now copy values to clipboard from tables. This improvement will reduce several steps and increase productivity when reusing values from a Qlik Sense application.

Grid layout on mobile devices

Qlik Sense app developers can choose the rendering layout for sheets on small screens, such as tablets and mobile phones. List view remains the default option, and only shows the visualization titles. The new Grid view shows a small preview of your visualizations, and reduces the amount of white space. This gives developers more flexibility and control over how apps designed for mobile are displayed.

Changing the small screen layout

Native container object

The container object extension was first released as part of the Dashboard bundle, and was very well received for the flexibility it adds to a Qlik Sense application sheet space. The Qlik Sense June 2019 release brings the first ever release of a native Container object, providing the existing functionality from the extension, while adding better integration capabilities with other authoring actions. This first release of the native container object will not support Qlik NPrinting, but this is planned for future releases.

With the release of the native container object, current applications using the existing extension objects will continue to work as before but the two Container Object extensions available in the Dashboard bundle will no longer be listed as new object options for applications.

Container

Visualizations and Mapping

New charts for the Visualization Bundle

  • Trellis container

    Makes small multiples of a master visualization. Great chart for showing trends across several dimensions.

  • P&L pivot chart

    A pivot table with customization options for easier creation of financial reports, such as profit and loss statements.

Improved bar chart

  • Labels on stacked bars.
  • Improved tooltip for stacked bars now displays positive and negative totals.
  • Cut bars also for stacked bars when bars go outside of the measure range.
  • You can create a chart with measures only, without dimension.
  • Styling options for the number of bars: auto, all or a fixed number.
  • Styling options for stroke color, width and bar width.
  • Toggle mini chart for all scales, not just for continuous axis.

Exploration menu for maps

The exploration menu for maps allows users to toggle layers and labels, adjust object size, and also change the base map image, map language, legend and zoom configuration.

Qlik Sense Mobile

Push notifications to Qlik Sense Mobile

With the June release, Qlik Sense Mobile for iOS and Android introduce support for native mobile push notifications. Administrators can push system notifications to their users from the Qlik Management Console. Notifications can be sent to all users, or to specific subsets of users, and can include a link into a dashboard. System notifications can be useful to inform users about updates to dashboard, or to announce system events.

System notifications and System notification policies features are available only on Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windowsinstallations licensed with a signed key

Create, Discover, Collaborate

Accelerated self-service with Qlik Sense chart suggestions

Qlik Sense chart suggestions make it easier to create a visualization by allowing you to simply drag and drop fields onto your sheets. Chart suggestions are created using the Cognitive Engine in Qlik, which leverages insights from the data loaded and combines them with best practices for data visualization.

Creating visualizations using chart suggestions

Publishing an app from the hub

In Qlik SenseApril 2018 you can publish an app that you have created to any stream for which you have publish access. If you have published an app to a stream, you can move your app between the streams for which you have permission to publish.

Improvements based on customers feedback

Qlik Sense April 2018 introduces a number of improvements based on customer feedback:

  • Grid size of an app sheet can now be customized with three different sizes: small, medium or large.
  • You can now set custom abbreviations in the load script. For example, you can choose to use Billions instead of G.
  • When clicking the Edit button of a Linked visualization, a new shortcut redirects you to editing the Master visualization item.
  • New keyboard shortcuts for selection back/forward have been added.

Multi-layer maps

Qlik Sense April 2018 features significant improvements to the built-in maps visualization:

  • Support for multiple layers.
  • Labels for point layers and area layers.
  • Quick look up of countries, divisions, cities, postal code areas.

Linking Qlik Sense Mobile to third-party applications

Qlik Sense Mobile can now interact with third party mobile applications through a custom generated URL (deep link). The link can be embedded within the third party mobile application, with appropriate selections and filters. Clicking the link opens the app in Qlik Sense Mobile with the filters and selections that were applied during original presentation. As a result, user experience is improved and context is provided when interacting with the app.

Creating links to Qlik Sense Mobile app content

Deploy

Deployment improvement

From Qlik SenseApril 2018 it is no longer necessary to use port 4244 as the authentication port. If you are using SSL to protect your environment, you can use port 443 as an external facing port for the Qlik Sense Proxy service (QPS).

Ports

Per-app VPN mode for Qlik Sense Mobile

Qlik Sense Mobile now works in a per-app VPN mode with the appropriate VMware Workspace ONE tunnel components. This helps secure network traffic between Qlik Sense Mobile and Qlik Sense Enterprise deployed behind a corporate firewall. With this addition, it is no longer necessary for device network traffic to go through a VPN. Only Qlik Sense Mobile apps are routed through the VPN, reducing load on the VPN server.

Configuring AirWatch for per-app VPN

 

Administer

Allocations for new license types

Customers who have purchased Qlik Sense with support for the new Professional and Analyzer license types can now configure the allocation of these licenses in the QMC.

Managing licenses

Analytic connections improvement

With Qlik SenseApril 2018, Qlik Sense Enterprise administrators now have the ability to add, remove, and reconfigure Analytic connections without additional restarts of any service becoming required for the Analytic connections to function. Administrators now can also stop and start any services in any order without impacting the Analytic connection functionality. Advanced Qlik Sense Desktop users can now develop and use Analytic connections even when the SSE server implementing the Analytic connection is started after the Qlik engine.

Analytic connections

Enable anonymous users to export data

From Qlik SenseApril 2018 anonymous users can print and export data.
