When working with Vizlib Line Chart, it's important to be clear about what you can and can't do. We've collected some tips for best practices, known issues, and limitations and listed them in this article for you, along with any answers to any other questions you might need.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
- Best Practice
- Known Issues
- Let's introduce you - If you're new to Vizlib Line Chart or looking for information, the Introduction page has links to the product resources and knowledge base articles.
- Analyse This? - Vizlib Line Chart is designed for trend or distribution analysis. Another chart extension might be better if your data doesn't fall into those categories.
- Work with the wizard - Always use the Setup Wizard to start building a line chart; you can always add expressions or edit data in the property panel once you have the basic version.
Forecasting - Advanced analytics
- Forecasts and Predictions - If you'd like to use analytics forecasting in your line chart, we've got an article on Advanced Analytics to help you understand and apply it without any coding or extra installations.
Alternative dimensions and measures
- There is an alternative - Vizlib Line Chart can be used with alternative dimensions and measures. If you add alternatives, you'll be able to choose the measure you prefer when you're using analysis mode, changing the outcome of the chart for a much more adaptable and varied user experience. If you'd like to add more focus to your chart, add reference lines to help users analyze the chart data.
- Performance - Vizlib Line Chart runs using the Qlik Sense hub engine, and each value will be processed separately. Having defined settings for related values (e.g. grouping color settings) will reduce Qlik Sense engine processing time, so this may help if you feel there's an issue with the chart performance. We've compiled some general advice about improving performance in Qlik Sense.
- Tooltips are disabled when the second dimension is displayed in a donut or pie format.
- Forecast Data can't be exported.
- For Japanese Y-Axis titles, the text was flipped. This has been fixed to inverse the text axis. Please see the Changelog for more information.
