Instant Qlik Sense App Screenshot

The Quick Intelligence Instant Sense Application is a template with KPI, Analysis, and Reporting sheets. The app is configurable by selecting dimensions and measures to analyse. The available dimensions and measures are driven from a spreadsheet of metadata. Any data set can be loaded into the application and analysed.

Thank you for your interest in our Instant Sense App. We hope that you find it very useful, that it accelerates your development and greatly improves your ROI in Qlik software. As a company, this is our primary aim, whether it be through our blog, sharing on Qlik Community, or working directly with clients.

We would appreciate it if you could fill in the form, so we can keep you up to date with when new features are released for the application, but if you would rather just download the zip file you can do so from here. We will notify of new versions on our socials.

We are happy to provide this application free of charge, but it is provided without any warranty or support. You can use it in any environment and amend it. Please share with others, but do give proper credit to Quick Intelligence when you do, or when you uses chunks of this application largely unchanged.

Template Load Scripts and Metadata Included

Whilst the beauty of this application template is that you can bring your own data and have a working application in a matter of minutes, we also provide a number of application scripts and metadata files that are generally useful to the Qlik community (and some that are slightly less so). Simply copy and paste the script into the application template, upload the metadata and point the load script at the file and hit reload. The included applications are as follows.

Sense SaaS Usage

Connect to the Qlik Sense SaaS API and view usage information from Qlik Sense Cloud. This includes the licence type used for the session and the licence type currently held by each user. Using this information you can make an informed decision about who should hold which licence types – particularly useful if you have Capacity licences on your server.
