Is there any way to open a url from Qliksense app?

Hi,

I want to provide a URL in qliksense app so that on clicking that , the website is opened in the browser.

I know that actions are not availble in Qliksense yet but I want to know if there is any solution.

I searched in Qlikbranch but could not find extension object.

Thanks,

Anitha

Create Text & Image object.

You will find a link option on the tool bar

You can also utilize the Simple Table extension (shipped as an extension with Qlik Sense - see here: http://help.qlik.com/sense/2.1/en-us/developer/#../Subsystems/Extensions/Content/Examples/simple-tab...) or from the various visualization extensions on http://branch.qlik.com to display dynamic (expression/calculation based) hyperlinks in your Qlik Sense apps, either in tables or through buttons.

Example using the customizable Simple Table extension:

Enjoy!

Hi Joe,

Can you post the extension with the possibility of a dynamic Hyperlink ? I was not able to find it on the links provided.

Thanks

Hi Andres,

The SimpleTable extension comes bundled as an example with Qlik Sense. Look for it here:

  • Qlik Sense Desktop: ...\Users\<UserName>\Documents\Qlik\Examples\Extensions
  • Qlik Sense Enterprise: ...\ProgramData\Qlik\Examples\Extensions



Once you have that installed and available for use, you can use a Dimension and put in a hyperlink using standard HTML formatting like so:

'<a href="http://www.google.com">' & 'Launch Google' & '</a>'

Hi Anita,

Yes absolutely, a text object with a URL link will create a href.
