Not sure if you have referred to this solution.
Please have a try at this one.
Thanks for your response! So the trick is to use the Server Share Direct Link URL (and not the browser URL), and use parent (and not self), and to have the source workbook already have parent in the url?
It seems the end user either has to click on a direct link sent to them (that includes parent in the URL), or use a landing page where the very first link does indeed pop up a new window, but the following windows will not.
Is there a way to edit the source's source workbook URL so the user doesn't have to use a direct link or doesn't have to see the first new window?
Thanks! Getting closer...
In the second link, the "Share Link" screenshot is showing how to get the URL of the target workbook.
The general setting process is,
1. You have 2 Workbooks (call them Source Workbook and Target Workbook) .
2. Publish Target Workbook to Tableau Server.
Assume multi-site is used, according to How View URLs Are Structured , the URL of Target Workbook should look like,
3. In Source Workbook's Dashboard Action (URL) setting, in URL text area, input "/#/site/<sitename>/views/<workbook_target>/<sheet>?:linktarget=_self"
4. Publish Source Workbook to Tableau Server.
Expected result is, click on Source Workbook, and it will jump to Target Workbook in the same browser.
