    Different Values in a Column linked to different URL

    LAWRENCE Slash

      I wanted to find out if it is possible to link the different values of a search in a column to a URL. For example, in superstore if the customer bought a product in technology category there is a link to a technology website and if it is sales in furniture there is a link to a different furniture website.

          Thanks Tom,

          But what i wanted was to be able to us a filter to change different URL based in the selection.

          URL action only give you  an option for one URL.

          Impossible is nothing

            URL actions are dynamic based on your data. You can push elements of data

            through into the URL to make it dynamic for each row.

            Attach a Tableau Packaged Workbook showing what you've done so far and I

            can help out.

              Thanks a lot Tom for your assistance. 

              I have attached a workbook.

              I want to have the product category section go to different URL based in the section, ie, Commercial and residential. if it is commercial a URL action to yahoo.com and if residential a URL action to google.

              Please is this possible with tableau?

              I appreciate your help.

              Thanks

                Yes. Create a calculated field called URL with a formula like IF [Product Category] = 'Commerical' then 'www.yahoo.com' elseif [Product Category] = 'Residential' then 'www.google.com' else 'www.bing.com' end

                 

                Drag the URL field onto the detail button on the Marks card in the Users Information sheet or add it onto the rows shelf and hide the column.

                Then add the URL action to the dashboard as per my original post. In step 6 of those instructions, click the > button next to the URL textbox and you should see your newly created URL field. Click that and you should be all set.
