Page 19 of 41 Visualize Your Data Create Your First Visualization Question to Answer: Where do our top sales originate? Now that you have loaded the data, you want to start to explore this data. The easiest place to start is to try to answer a specific question, such as identifying which countries have the most customers. 1. Within the App overview , click on My new sheet . 2. Click the Edit button on the top right corner. Within the design interface you will see three main sections: Objects, Design Canvas, and Properties editor. On the leftmost ribbon, you will see the objects pane. This includes a list of available chart objects, data fields, and a reusable library that you can drag-and-drop onto the Canvas. Fields : Data fields that have been loaded that you can drag into the application Master Items : Reusable objects (Dimensions, Measures, and Visualizations) that you can reuse throughout the application. As we go through the workshop, you will see how this can save a lot of time and effort to avoid building the same or similar calculations and visualizations each time. At this point, you have not created any Master items, so this menu will be blank.
Page 20 of 41 Charts: A listing of different visualizations that are supported out of the box Custom Objects: A listing of extensions that are in addition to the out of the box visualizations presented above (this is currently not supported in Qlik Cloud, but is fully available on the Enterprise version for extensibility purposes) 3. In the Objects section on the left, select the Charts tab and double click a Bar chart . You will then see an Add dimension and an Add measure button in the middle of your screen
Page 21 of 41 From here, you can either click to add data elements, like dimensions and measures, or you can drag- and-drop them in. Dimensions are attributes that can be reported on, such as Name, Country, Product, etc. Measures are the quantitative/numeric values that we are trying to measure, such as Sales $, Quantity, etc. 4. Click Add dimension and select Country . You can search or scroll down to find this value. 5. Click Add measure . In the search box, type in Sales, select Sales from the filtered list, and then select Sum(Sales) . When a measure is added, you can choose from a list of common aggregations to summarize these fields. A more flexible expression editor is also available to create more complex or compound calculations. More on this later. 6. The following visualization will now appear. Note that there is a grey bar between Brazil and Mexico. Which means there were orders which were never properly associated into Customers from the sample app. Here you can see that Qlik will still allow you to see your Customer Country data, but not lose focus on the fact that additional sales were generated and could be relevant Properties pane : While a visualization or object is selected, a properties pane will be shown on the right side of the screen. The properties pane allows you to control the behavior, formatting, and appearance of the visualization. Areas of the properties pane are split into drawers and sub-drawers.
