It's Voting Time! Help Us Choose The Winners Of The KPI Designer Challenge

The Vizlib's challenge of the year has finally come to an end and voting is now open! ๐Ÿฅ [closes on the 23rd of November!]

A Quick Recap โช

The KPI Designer Challenge aimed to pull together the most creative examples of KPI objects built using our latest Qlik Sense extension.

We have received some a-m-a-z-i-n-g entries that truly blew our socks away and selected these 11 KPI examples as top contenders.

A massive thanks to all the challenge participants who took the time to develop a KPI using the Vizlib KPI Designer for this competition. ๐Ÿ™

The 3 winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd place) will be selected by combining the public vote with those cast by the Vizlib team. ๐Ÿ†

Before you jump to the voting bit though, please take the time to read the descriptions of each submission. ๐Ÿ‘€

Many of the contestants have submitted examples of full-blown dashboards (awesome!), but for the purpose of this challenge, we'll be looking at KPI objects only.

Remember, the winning entry will be introduced as a preset in our KPI Designer extension!

1. Michael Laverick โ€“ Xmas Shopping

Michael went with the Christmas Shopping theme because, well, it is that time of the year ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿ˜‰

In the KPIs, he's used a colour border that highlights if he's finished buying for the person or not (green - yes, red - no).

The body of the KPI shows the person's name and their relation, how many presents he's bought them, his budget for them, the actual spend (with the comparison) and a satisfaction rating for his buys (out of 5 - shown as a star rating).

Michael suggests that it works best with the QS Snow Effect extension ๐Ÿ˜Šโ„๏ธ (or just wait for our snow effect that gets released at the end of November every year. Billions and billions of Vizlib snowflakes, believe me ๐Ÿ˜‰)

4. Anubhav Gupta โ€“ Sales Analysis

Anubhav has implemented 34 layers to bring out the report in the best presentable form, capturing all the relevant information.

He says the thought process behind the selection and placement of the different layers was to convey a 360-degree view of any sales business to any viewer.

5. Gregorsz Stepien โ€“ Team G2 Esports from League of Legends

Gregorsz submitted a KPI design that's all about team G2 Esports from League of Legends. ๐ŸŽฎ

Full disclosure: Gregorsz works at Vizlib and we love his quirkiness. Don't worry, there won't be any favouritism, it's the public's vote that counts.

6. Keith Smith โ€“ Consumer financial complaints on the rise

Keith draws on the data from the United States Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB): Consumer Complaint Database.

In his submission, Keith aims to create a newspaper or magazine worthy โ€œinfographicโ€ (using one KPI Designer object, re-sized to take up the entire sheet) that summarizes the information at a very high level, focusing on a few key statistics that the average person would find interesting.

9. Fred Schonenberg โ€“ Productivity

Fred chose to separate all Qlik Objects, making sure the Vizlib KPI object is shown as a coherent whole.

The Mouse-Over creates a VizLib-Blue ๐Ÿ˜Š border, ensuring that it clearly shows which object you are talking about during a presentation.

11. Webhelp โ€“ Configurable KPI Dashboard

Webhelp set out to show the ability of a configurable display across multiple KPIs within a single KPI Designer object, providing a cleaner output and a much less busy interface for the end user.

The display contains 4 KPI buttons with actions that allow the rest of the display objects to convert between the KPI values. It can handle different value formatting and has the ability to show/hide objects dynamically across the KPIs.
