Yes, that works Niall, just tested on Server 10.3. You only need the :linktarget=_parent addition to the URL, e.g.
The reason it works is two-fold:
- You figured out to use _parent instead of _self
- Most people incorrectly assume the linktarget option gets added to the URL for the link you want to open, when it fact it must be set ahead of time on the source page to tell it how to open up any subsequent links
Thanks for posting the solution.
Thanks this was helpful, but if the end user is to not see any new windows open, the end user will have to either A) Use a direct link all the time or B) have atleast one window open so the source and target both have parent in their URL. Correct? Or is there a way to edit the source URL so it contains parent?
Option A will work. I don't think Option B will work. Option C is adding a web frame on the Tableau Dashboard so URL actions will open in that frame rather than a new window.
