Teamline is one of the solutions you can use with LLodi to manage your decisions in your Qlik Platform.

Turn your insights into actions and share with your team, creating tasks to meet your business goals.

Design your own Teamline App in less time than you thought with your preferred database.

Some workflows you can set up:
– Create a task or project, assign a reporter and a due date.
– Send an automatic email when you assign a task to a colleague.
– Schedule reminders for your team.
– Get a custom daily status update.
– Set up meetings.
– And much more!

If you already use a tool such as JIRA to manage your projects and tasks, you can work directly from Qlik and update your data in JIRA in real time.

LLodi Agent is one of the modules in LLodi, it provides a server-side environment to make your requests, integrates your authentication credentials and offers some built-in services (like SMS, Twitter or email) including a Qlik API Wrapper with some out-of-the-box functionalities.

 

Maybe the most powerful and exciting functionality is the Trigger function.

It allows end user to trigger Qlik Apps providing values for some variables; you will be able to create or edit a script tab with some values in it and reload that app, triggering the actions defined in the script.

 

How to do it:

Endpoint:

https://<Your agent url>/sense/trigger

Content-type:

application/json

Body fields:

  • app_id: The id of the app you want to trigger. This field is required.
  • tab_name (optional): Choose the tab where you want to write the variables. If you don’t provide one, the default name is “Tab Generated by LLodi”. If the tab doesn’t exist it will be created in second position, just after the Main tab.
  • tab_action (optional): This field will define where will be written the variables.
    • overwrite (default): the content replaces the new tab.
    • append: The content is inserted at the end of the tab.
    • prepend: The content is inserted at the beginning of the tab.

 

Use cases

 

  1. Use Qlik as your Workflow Integration Tool

We can use a Qlik app as our integration workflow by feeding data and triggering a Qlik script where we can make concatenated or parallel operations disregarding their complexity. Basically, we are replacing most of what integration tools would do and building it in Qlik instead.

  1. Filtered reload

Trigger a filtered reload for the same app we are in or another one. Effectively this could be a simple way to implement the App On Demand feature.

 

  1. Closed Loop Workflow

Trigger an auxiliary app where different actions that change your data sources can be done and the last step of the workflow is reloading the primary app. This means a real-time closed loop that allows you to work with updated data from your Qlik App.

This summer has been busy for the LLodi Team as we released some new features that we are sure are going to leverage even more the powerful integrations we can help you build for your Qlik apps.

First of all, let’s make a quick review of the new LLodi Platform Architecture so you can master all its elements:

LLodi Writer Extension: Let the end users enter data directly from their Qlik dashboards.
LLodi Writer Connector: Trigger actions from the Qlik Script (Alerts, Notifications, Operational Tasks…).
LLodi Agent (NEW!): Provides a server-side environment to make your requests safer and more powerful including already a bunch of additional features.
LLodi Service (NEW!): Send data your own DataBase from Qlik or store your data payload into files (plain text, csv, json, xml…).

These four elements together give LLodi the ability to connect within Qlik to any REST API and get the most of Business Intelligence where you need it.
