    Android Tableau Mobile URL Actions

    Ryan Miller

      When try to use an URL action in a visualization from within Tableau Mobile for Android (latest version of app, 8.1 with Android 4.3), any external links cause the tablet to appear to 'download' the page as opposed to opening it in a new window like in the iOS version of the app.  I've tried setting different browsers as the default web browser (Chrome, Android Browser, Firefox) without any success.  I've also turned off any pop-up blockers that might be enabled.  The URL action has the option 'URL Encode Data Values' which seems to have solved the issue for others, but does not do the trick in Android.  This is currently a show stopper for us with Android and was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this behavior and if they've figured out any workarounds.
