Work with document, link

Hello! In my Qlick View document I want to make a text object as a link.
The link should redirect to another document and to a specific sheet, can I implement it?
I know that I can make a link with the action "Open Qlick View Document", but I also need it to open a specific sheet.
Is it possible somehow to make a link through the actions of an object or using triggers?
I would be very grateful for the help!

First part you already done

In the second application If you could assign "On open" trigger using Activate sheet can deserve.

Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

The only other option would be to use the Open URL Action instead of the Open QlikView Document and use the OpenDoc.htm page call with the sheet parameter specified in the URL call as well.  

Here is the Help link to the full list of Actions, but I think you already are aware of this:


I 'borrowed' the following from another community post response:


Hopefully that may get you the rest of the way here.

I now work a compressed schedule, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, so those will be the days I will reply to any follow-up posts.

1) Go to the QV document and sheet through access point, using full browser (Ajax).

2) Right click somewhere in the sheet, click "Mail with bookmark as a link".

3) Your default mail app will open (for me it is Outlook), copy the URL. Mine looks like this:


4) Use this link in other apps. The auto-created bookmark in this link will bring sheet as well as selections. I hope that it is what you want.
