I am trying to figure out a way to either run a URL action when the workbook loads,
> This is not possible because url action will be activated by either click or hover or menu option there is no way in tableau based on workbook load to triger URL
assign the URL to a URL object using a filter as part of the URL address
> Assign icon or image in the dashboard set URL action with passing filters in the url
Check the below url how to pass filter in url: Using Field and Filter Values in URLs
Hope this helps kindly mark this as helpful/correct so that it will help others
Hi Naveen, thanks for the response. I understand the URL action and passing filters/parameters the issue I am try to solve is for the initial load of that url page to be based on a filter (specifically our client filter) so they see the url we want them to see without clicking.
