I want a user to click the Navigation Button on a given sheet, and thus go to a different sheet in a new tab. Is this possible? Do I really have to use the KPI as a workaround? Should be simple enough right? I'm stumped.
The Nov 2018 version and above has a dashboard bundle which has an extension you are looking for . It will be managed by Qlik in every release so go ahead and use it.
You can able to button extension to navigate around sheets.
You will find this button extension under custom object -> Dashboard Bundle option
Please use attached image.
You will find below options to navigate around sheet.
If you want to navigate to specific sheet then use Go to sheet (defined by sheet Id) option and mention your sheet ID.
Hope this will work for you.
