KPI / Text field formatting

I have email addresses in my data - I would like to add them into my visualisation as either a text Text or KPI chart object.  Does anyone know of a way to turn this into a hyperlink so that if the user clicks on it a new message window from say outlook would open to start an email?  many thanks

Have you tried prefixing your address with mailto: like

mailto:john.doe@email.com

? Most browsers should handle this like you want, opening the default email application that is set by the user.

I'd suggest to use a simple table, put your column containing the email address and choose URL as its representation.

You can even do as Stefan suggested and as a column put:

='mailto:'&YourEmailDimension instead of ydirectly using YourEmailDimension as a column
