New features in our release PlatformManager 4.0

Reload your Application after promotion

Our mission is to make the development of an application more efficient for you as a developer. As a result the end user can spend more time analyzing the data. For that reason we continue to develop PlatformManager and continue to expand. Ultimately PlatformManager makes your development process more efficient and much easier.

In PlatformManager 4.0 we developed a new feature which allows you to run a reload of an app during the promotion process.  You don’t have to switch to your Qlik Sense app to reload your application because now the option is integrated in PlatformManager.

Multi-development

PlatformManager allows multiple developers to work on the same Qlik Sense app, simultaneously which will speed up your development process. Developers no longer have to wait until the app is checked-in. They can work together in the same app at the same time. Just agree on who is working on which part of the app and you’re good to go. Every developer simply checks-out the app and starts developing new sheets, visuals or changing the script. When finished, they just perform an individual check-in.

During development changes are synchronized to all developers so merging is not required. When all developers have finished, the app can be published for testing and the new version can be compared with the previous version visualizing the differences.

Top 4 benefits of Multi Development in PlatformManager 4.0

  • Allows multiple developers to work on the same Qlik Sense app, simultaneously
  • Developers no longer have to wait until the app is checked-in.
  • Changes are synchronized to all developers so merging is not required
  • A lot of time and money can be saved
