Dealing with hierarchies changing over time at
the WA Qlik User Group: August 2022

Qlik WA User Group

We all know that organisations have a hierarchy of business units or departments. However, the data that represents it is often stored in a simple way:

Department ID, Parent Department ID, Department Name



Qlik Sense and QlikView have a special function, called (no surprise) Hierarchy, which makes it very easy to deal with this data.

However, sometimes the department structure changes over time and users want to see this reflected in their reporting. In this case, the Hierarchy function does not work correctly, and we need to take a different approach.

If you’d like to learn more, please join us at the WA Qlik User Group catch-up, where Sergey Makushysnki, our principal consultant, will share the way of dealing with the hierarchies changing over time.


Our next meeting will be held from 3.30 pm on Thursday 25th August 2022, at the Victoria Park Hotel, 605 Albany Highway, Victoria Park, WA 6102.
