Thanks.

Dear Stefania,

If you have a full url/path, YES.

Take a look on this thread: Is there any way to open a url from Qliksense app?

Dear Ricardo

I have a full path like this:

C:\test\filename.pdf

but it doesn't work.

I guess that isn´t supported, because the browser doesn´t understad the url.

But, you could try like this syntax:

file:///c:/WINDOWS/clock.avi
