    Controlling if a URL is opened in web object or a browser

    Nehal Ukani



      I am new to Tableau and would like to know if there is a way of controlling URL action behavior.

      Lets say I have 3 URL actions in my dashboard, I want Action 1 and Action 2 to open in web object of the dashboard while Action 3 to open in a browser


      The reason why I need to use a web object is to prevent a published dashboard from opening a blank tab when calling a mailto or tel protocol (basically dashboard needs to have call and mail functionality) . While web object is helping circumvent blank tab issue, it is impacting other URL action that links to internal website


      Any help will be appreciated. Thanking in advance
