The Vizlib Venn Diagram graphically displays logical attributes as circles, with common elements of the attributes being represented by intersections of the circles. The circle size, position and intersections are driven by the elements who may own one or more of the available attributes.

3.1 Dimensions:

The Vizlib Venn Diagram supports and requires two dimensions which represent on one hand attributes and the other hand elements which together provide a set of groupings, intersections and visual representation of relationships.

  • Attribute (First Dimension): Is an attribute of elemenets, like for example hair color, sex, height or age of a student population.

  • Elements (Second Dimension): Should represent the number of elements which have one or more attributes assigned to them.

3.2 Measures:

The Vizlib Venn Diagram supports one metric which represents the size of the element population.

3.3 Sorting:

The Vizlib Venn Diagram supports the native Qlik Sense sorting capabilities. More information here on the Qlik Sense Help page:

3.4 Data Handling

The Vizlib Venn Diagram supports showing & hiding zero values and using calculation condition to control when the chart is displayed or not.

3.5 Appearance

Group of properties to change the visual settings of the Venn Diagram.


Labels Settings give you the possibility to modify whether labels are displayed and to format, dimension, measure and intersection labels to your likings.


Color the Venn Diagram Circles to your likings or match them to your corporate colors. As with any other extensions released, Vizlib provides you with a rich color palette to choose from.
You also have the ability to set your own custom color scheme.

Circle Formatting

Circle formatting allows you to set the border formats of the circles including the background opacity. The circle colors can be set in the colors section described above.

3.6 Interactivity

Interactivity enables the users to interact with the data in the chart as well as navigate throughout the Venn Diagram for a better view of the visualization. This includes enabling/disabling of the tooltips.

Bear in mind multi-select is currently not supported in the first version of the Venn Diagram.

5 Known Limitations
  • Limited to 3,333 data points (rows).
  • Multi-select is not supported yet.
  • There are geometrical limitations on how many intersections and circle combinations can be displayed on one view. The higher the number of available attributes & elements, the higher the likelihood some intersections or circles will not be drawn. It is therefore recommended to use the Venn Diagram only with few available values to extract meaningful information from it.
  • Patterns as a visual representation of intersections are not supported in Qlik Sense Desktop, and the background is painted in grey for intersections instead of using a diagonal pattern.
