Yes we can do that. you can use actions and URL from that.
To add a hyperlink:
- On a worksheet, select Worksheet > Actions. ...
- In the Actions dialog box, click Add Action and then select URL.
- In the subsequent dialog box, specify a name for the link. ...
- Use the drop-down list to select a source sheet or data source. ...
- Select the fields you want to use for highlighting.
dialog box for URL has only single space to enter weblink
You have given static link (www.supplier1.com) so this will always go to the same link , instead of that have a filed with values like supplier1,supplier2,supplier3 .... for each company and let say this field name is urlname.
Then use this field in URL like below.
So the idea here is to insert the filed name into URL so that it will be dynamic and go to different links based on that value.
Thanks so much!! it is done.:)
Hi Akshita Jain,
Yes it is correct , as above HIMA VARDHAN said correct, for the more information about this idea please go through the below link and information.
TABLEAU DASHBOARD ACTION 3: DO A GOOGLE SEARCH OR GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH FROM A DASHBOARD
Here are the steps required to create this user experience:
- Go to Google Images and search for one of the locations
- Record the URL that appears in the browser. A search for Kansas City resulted in this URL: https://www.google.com/search?q=kansas+city&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiH6eqWhoDKAhVWz2MKHctYBJsQ_AUICSgD&biw=1366&bih=643
- You can keep the entire link, but all that you actually need is: https://www.google.com/search?q=kansas+city&tbm=isch – this URL includes the query (Kansas City) and tells Google to show results on the image tab (isch = image search)
- Add a dashboard action by navigating to Dashboard > Actions > Add Action
- The dashboard action should be a URL action. You can refine the settings to have the action run on Hover, Select, or Menu; I have chosen for the action to run on Select (which is the same as click).
- Lastly, for the URL, paste the URL that you recorded from the search above. Replace the portion of the URL for the query, which is the text immediately following the “?q=”, with a field from your data. You can add a field from your data source by clicking the arrow that appears next to the empty URL box. I wanted to run a search for each city, so I used the field <City> from my data source.
Here’s how my final dashboard action looks:
Now if I click a place on my map, a Google Image search is executed with the name of that city (from my underlying data) as the search query!
