    Hyperlink Dimension Data

    Ryan Miller

      Hi, I'm wanting to see if there's a way that I can make a "Link" dimension filed become hyperlinks in a dashboard setting in Tableau, that allows for the user to click one and open up that page.

       

      For example, I have a field called "Permalinks" that is the hyperlink to the social media post. However, when it's ingested into Tableau, it becomes a dimension and is no longer usable as a hyperlink. Since we have hundreds of these permalinks that we're trying to link to the web with, turning them into text boxes and setting a URL for all of them isn't really plausible.

       

      Are there any work-arounds or ways to make this happen?

       

      Thanks!
