I really wish the application was easier to use in the development phase. Our business model relies on the business to build their own reports and many departments did not have the associates they need with this type of skill set (i.e. SQL experience). In a business model where a centralized department (i.e. IT) is in control of the reports for the entire company, this would not be a problem. The development was the ultimate reason this application did not take off in my organization vs. a competitor's application (Tableau). This is a shame as the finished dashboard appeared to be more polished.

This solution would be improved with the inclusion of a feature that would allow us to add a common library of (our) commands used in load scripts and expressions, so with a keyword, we would get a drop down to select the command we are looking for, as opposed to the generic help. I keep them all in OneNote now and copy and paste them in, then change the field names. This addition would really save time. examples: Convert date-time stamp to just a normal date in the Load script - so we can match to the company calendar for Model Year / month etc , Fiscal Year /month / week of year/ week in year date(floor(DTTMSTAMP),'MM/DD/YYYY') as TransactionDate, Storing QVD's: (this is the path needed from a Data Loader) STORE SummarySalesAggregate INTO [..\QVDData\SummarySalesUnitsAndDollars.qvd]; Sorted and Count for creating Arrays: SortedAndCounted: Left join (SummarizeSales2) LOAD Option_Inv, Line_No, if(peek('Option_Inv',-1)<> Option_Inv,1, Peek('counter',-1)+1) as counter Resident SummarizeSales2 Order by Option_Inv asc, Line_No asc;

I would want them to have more options as a user. It would be nice for them to create their own dashboards and add fields.

More/newer visualisation components need to be added. QlikView's ability to embed custom visualisation is not a great experience.
