Vizlib Heatmap - Introduction

Vizlib Heatmap is a highly customizable, supported and easy-to-use extension for Qlik Sense which provides a graphical representation of your data.

Vizlib Heatmap features include

  • Fully customizable Heatmap with rich formatting options.
  • Legend Control including flexible positioning (bottom/top/left/right/radial, left/right alignment, legend scale, labels).
  • Supports multiple measures to populate the Powerful tooltip - add more metrics and KPIs and display them on hover.
  • Choose from a wide range of color palettes or set your own colors for your Heatmap.
  • Reference lines - Add X and Y axis dimension lines to help display targets or thresholds.
  • Full control over interactivity and ability to turn native functionality off (i.e: full screen).
