How to generate dynamic URLs in Qlik Sense?

How can I dynamically generate a hyperlinked URL in Qlik Sense?  The approach for Qlikview here does not work in Qlik Sense.  https://community.qlik.com/message/862442#862442

I can get it to show the correct URL, using ='https://my.web.com/'&REGISTRY_ID where REGISTRY_ID is the number I want to insert, but I cannot seem to find any way to turn that into a hyperlinked URL.  The <url> functionality in Qlikview does not work.

For now I'm using this extension: Qlik Branch but it would be better if the ability to tag something as a URL directly within Qlik Sense were implemented.

Hi David,

As of now you can only link a single image or some text to navigate using a text object. But if you would like to use a navigation link other than this you will have to develop an extesnion.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi David,

As Reddys310‌ mentioned, if you want to use url-s in your table, you'll have to develop/use an extension.

There are table extensions too at Qlik Branch , you should try some of it.

You should try it with <a href=....>Link</a> format.

Re: How to generate dynamic URLs in Qlik Sense?

The extension Qlik Branch is helpful but I also need to create dynamic hyperlinks.  Specifically I was hoping to be able to tag links as html links so I could link to reports in our CRM (i.e. links that don't start with "www" or "http")

Please Help!

Hi Steven,

I tried the SimpleTable extension, you can create dynamic hyperlinks with it.

The extension is able to comprehend html so you should try the following formula at dimension:

'<a href="'&Your Hiperlink can be complex formula as well, that evaluated a link&'">'&'Your label, that you want to see at cells'&'</a>'

Hi Steven,

For you to create dynamic links you need to go with an extension. I really don't think there is an extension which can be plugged in yet.

Thanks,

Sangram.

I'm using QlikSense 2.2.4 and I managed to do this in a Table by selecting URL representation on the column containing the hyperlink.

Hi David

Would you be able to mark this post as Answered? Damien has correctly pointed out that this is possible using a standard table object in the current versions of Qlik Sense.
