    URL Actions all open in the same browser window

      New Tableau user, just joined a group that has been using Tableau for about one year.

       

      We have a "landing page" that lists all of our reports - this landing page is actually a Tableau dashboard itself. Our executives hit this page first, then select which reports they want.

       

      If they click a report, it opens up in a new window, which is a desired result. But the issue is that if they click three reports in a row (not uncommon), all three reports open up in the same tab, in the same new window, so essentially they only see the last one they clicked.

       

      EXAMPLE:

       

      An exec clicks Report1, Report2, Report3. A new window will open and show Report1...then be replaced by Report2...then be replaced by Report3.

       

      Is there a way to force each URL action to open in its own window? Ideally it opens up in its own tab, but I won't be picky...opening up new browser windows is acceptable. Essentially what I want is the html equivalent of the 'target="_blank"' functionality.

       

      Thanks all! New Tableau user and this is a tremendous community and resource.
