Vizlib Custom Report Properties - Settings


Dimensions and measures sort order

This setting will decide how the lists with dimensions and measures are sorted. 

"Sort alphabetical" will sort ascending in alphabetical order. This is the default.

"Sort by data set order" follows the order the dimensions and measures are placed in the table starting from the left if this is a table data set (created from a native Qlik Sense Table). For normal data sets (created with the Data Set Creator) the order will go from top to bottom. If a special sort order is needed this is the easiest way to achieve that.

Sort selected items first

This will move all selected items in dimensions and measures to the top. The advantage is that no selected items are "hidden" in the lower part of the list.

Allow collapse

When activated, the Custom Report will show only a title once the collapse size is reached. Collapse will happen when the min width OR min height is reached.

Export data set title

The data set title will be included in the export when the option is activated.

Mashup Export URL

When used in mash-ups it is typically required to change the export URL in order for the export to function as expected. Only change this if you understand how the extension will behave in a mashup.

Zero values on/off as default

This will set the default for zero values on/off. User can still change this in the extension from the context menu (unless visualization settings are hidden from the context menu).

Override include null values 

This will override the setting from the master item table on including null values or not. Similarly for normal data sets it will override the measure setting for including null values. This setting can sometimes be useful in pivot-tables when excluding null values on sub-dimensions can cause unwanted (but correct) results.

Defer Layout Update

This feature is essential when working with larger data sets since it limits the amount of times the values need to be recalculated. Enabling  defer layout update will hold an update until the Update layout button is clicked (Figure 1). The user can then make several selections in quick succession without having to wait for the data set to refresh.
