Link in app description

Hi,

in our company wiki have wrote a detailed description for all the charts in our Qlik apps.

We would like to create a link from our apps to these wiki sites now and the app description seems to be the best location to

do this. Unfortunately i cant use HTML there.

Does anybody else know a good way how to link to external sources from within an app?

I know i can do a textfield a link it somewhere but i dont really want to waste any space in my chart area.

why not use an extension.

This button might do the trick.

Text field doesnt take up alot of space.  You could use a small help icon in its place.

Or you could create a how to... story in your data story area if you wanted it off the sheet.

Ok a small help icon coulod be an idea but when i do that there are always some scrollbars showing, no matter how big that image is. That doesnt really look very nice :/
