    How do you automatically hyperlink to a cell in Tableau

    Peter Kruse

      Hi,

       

      I am interested in finding a way to automatically hyperlink a cell in Tableau to an intranet page. The idea being that when I export the data to excel it will automatically link the title of the matter (this will be used for analysis of hours billed to a client by matter) to the matter's intranet page. Is this something that can be done in Tableau? Any help would be greatly appreciated

          I guess there are 2 questions? Thus my 2 answers:

           

          1. You can easily link from a tableau visualisation to another page within a dashboard by using an "URL Action" in a tableau "cell" to a webpage.
          2. In exports, you can just add another dimension in your data containing the URL that you want to link to.

           

          if this doesnt anwser your question, can you please specify your question more precisely.
