Hello Qlik Community Members,


We have just launched updates to our existing Missions and Badges which include:


  • Redesigned Mission Badges updated with the Qlik look and feel
  • Additional descriptions for more complicated missions
  • Qlik Community Tip document outlining Navigation, Mission details, Available Missions, and Difficulty Ratings
  • New Missions: Document Rater and Personable


We will be launching additional missions in the coming months to encourage more complicated activities and recognize special contributors. New missions will be applied on a going forward  basis to encourage and reward associated actions. So if you completed the required actions before the Mission was created, you will need to complete them again to receive the badge. As new missions launch we will announce them here and also update the associated Qlik Community Missions and Badges Resource Document.

We have just completed some updates we think you will find useful.


The categories on our Qlik Community Index page have been revised to provide easier navigation.  The new categories are:

  • Qlik Sense
  • QlikView
  • General


Under General you can find areas which are not product specific - such as Community Information, Education Services, Technical Blogs and Groups.


We have also added two resource areas on the top right of the home page highlighting:

  • Benefits of joining Qlik Community
  • Links to popular getting started resources


We will adding more getting started resources over the coming weeks to help new members learn best practices like where and how to post their questions. We hope you like the updates.

Last week we posted an announcement regarding the recently launched Qlik Community MVP program on the Qlik Blog titled: Recognizing Qlik Communities Most Valued Participants. We thought it would be nice to share more details about each of our MVP members such as their first Qlik app, years working with Qlik products, country of residence and perspective on collaboration in Qlik Community.


We hope you enjoy their sports inspired Qlik MVP Member Trading Cards and links to their profiles. For those of you who are new to Qlik Community- following MVP members updates in your content feeds is a great way to see some of the communities most current discussions and content. You might also have a sense of camaraderie with those who reside in the same country as you.

This Wednesday we will be hosting our 2nd Fika Learning Series event with Qlik experts online to answer questions pertaining to this engaging and very relevant topic:

The benefits of blending data and experience

Intuition and analytics are two poles of the decision-making spectrum. If you’re like most people, you naturally gravitate to one or the other. But no person or data set is perfect, and making decisions based solely on intuition or analytics won’t generate the best outcomes. Join our live event to learn how you can move to the middle and become a “data-informed” decision maker. During our Fika events, we’ll share educational videos and have our experts available to answer your questions in live discussion forums.

Take a sneak peek at the pre-event video intro.

Its not too late to RSVP for the event.

Best Regards,

Qlik Community Management Team

Our MVP are comprised of those who have accumulated the most points over time by posting content, helping other members and reinforcing the positive culture here in Qlik Community.If you’re new to Qlik Community these are the members you want to ‘follow’ in your activity streams so you can see the approach they take when solving problems. You may also bookmark their postings to stay current on Qlik solutions and relevant BI information.

You can visually recognize any Qlik Community MVP member by the green mvp-12px.png   icon next to their name on content feeds or when you mouse over their profile. We will be sharing more information in the coming months around the program as well as featuring these members and their expertise.

Please join me in congratulating and recognizing them for all of their contributions and hard work to help make Qlik Community a top resource for Qlik Partners, Customers and BI Researchers.


Best Regards,

Qlik Community Management Team


Andy joins us from RadioShack where he was the Technical Community Manager for an internal community. Andy and his team launched and ran a robust employee community which supported over 30,000 global employees. He brings over 5 years of experience in system administration, community management, and development to Qlik.

When he’s not making great things for the Qlik Community, Andy enjoys live music, his cats, his friends, and working on his lawn.


With his experience and can-do approach we think he's the perfect addition to our team!

Hello Qlik Community Members,


I'm sure you noticed our scheduled maintenance window last week and again yesterday. Apologies for the extended outages which we know impact your collaboration and research schedule. These outages were part of a large platform version upgrade project and we did our best to minimize them as much as possible. Qlik Community is now on a newer version of the platform which has some great enhancements to improve user experience as well as fixes for some minor bugs.


Post Upgrade Tips

Please be sure to clear your browser cache and cookies to refresh the community interface. You may want to also log out and log back in. We have tested in all of the primary browsers (Chrome™, Firefox®, Safari® and Internet Explorer®) to ensure the updates are rendering correctly.


For the best experience you should always use the most recent version of your browser which contains extensions, updates, and plugins to help ensure you have the proper experience with loading time, content posting, and video display.

Profile Page

The profile page has been redesigned to be more engaging with larger images, centralized editing, and access to different types of content.

Profile image and details are next to an enhanced image carousel.  The Profile Biography, Connections, and Self Assigned Skills (NEW) are easy to see and update.


Recent Activity displays your Status Update (NEW), Contacts, Featured Content, Recent Places, and different types of content streams.



People and Content Filtering has been improved and now allows dual filtering for a more refined search. You can search for content status, assignment, and activity level in specific areas or across the whole Community.


You can also change the display from 'pane' to 'list' style depending on your preference.

We will be posting additional tips in the coming weeks to help you utilize more of the updated features.

Hello Qlik Community Members,


We have just installed some new profile icons to help identify specific members of the community more easily.


You can see the icon next to the member’s avatar and on their profile page. If you mouse over the icon a brief descriptor will also display for you.


Here are the new icons and their descriptors.

new icons b.jpg


Visual call outs for specific community members such as our Employee’s and Support team member help give a little more context to the resources they post and their responses to discussion threads. Members who are official Qlik Partners and Luminary program members also have new icons.


It’s always a good idea to follow and friend these types of members so you receive alerts for new content and have more opportunities to collaborate with Qlik experts.


Thanks for your participation in Qlik Community!
