Menu items with action to open Qlik app and pass selections


It would be great if menu items could be used to navigate between Qlik apps and also move selections between them. For now it' is only possible to hardcode the URL to another app.

In general - why the set of object actions is not common between all actions? Looks like it should be possible for most of the objects.

  • Hi Przemyslaw,

    Thanks for this feature request.

    A potential way of doing this could be to copy the URLs into a table in your 'Data Load Editor' and type out an expression that could lead you to the correct page.
    ID, URL
    1, uniqueURL1
    2, uniqueURL2
    3, uniqueURL3
    4, uniqueURL4

    Then you can use an expression to show a different URL based on your selections

  • Hi Przemyslaw,

    Okay, this may be challenging but an interesting feature nonetheless!
    I am curious to see how our community would use this feature (and if they want it). I will keep my eye on this FR.

    Tell me in basic terms how you/your company would like to use this feature.
    In the meantime, have you thought about common selections and making them into bookmarks? That may be a way around this at the moment.

    Please note your unique ticket reference (#35368) and URL

    Kind regards,
