Link map selection to URL


I have a map that displays the location of my clients.  I would like to be able to select an icon on the map and when I do i am brought to a webpage for that client (a webpage opens in a browser).  Can this be achieved easily in Power BI?  If so, how would I do this?

Re: Link map selection to URL

I believe that the best you can get with this in Power BI would be to have the click on the map filter a table that displayed the URL and then they could click on the URL.


Not the Power BI thought police...

Thanks for the feedback!  I was hoping there was a direct way to accomplish this, but I guess a work around may do for the short term, or perhaps another BI tool.
