Hyperlink in Qliksense

Is there any way in qliksense wherein we can provide a hyperlink and when the user clicks the hyperlink, he be redirected to a local folder stored in your computer.  With the text and image chart , I could create a link. But  I could not get  into my local folder.

Thanks in advance.

This may be restricted by internet options and security settings. I attempted to create local access to a file on my Qlik Sense desktop using something like this:




1,"file:///c:\temp\part 3.png"

2,"file:///c:\temp\part 3.png"

3,"file:///c:\temp\part 3.png"

4,"file:///c:\temp\part 3.png"



The in Qlik Sense 2.2 - in a Table object you can specify a column as a URL so it will become an active Hyperlink:

I used a browser to access my local Qlik Sense Desktop listener:

I installed an Addon (Firebug) for Firefox and viewed the console:

However, when clicking this link I get this in Firefox:

I believe this may be the case with any web based application attempting to access local files on the client machine, even if you are using local Qlik Sense Desktop.

Let me know what you find.
