How to open a Text box link in the same tab rather than a new tab

Hi All,

 

I have a dashboard that has many tiles and when I click on a tile it takes me to the report that the tile is linked to. Now from report to go back to the Dashboard there is no option, therefore I created a tesxt box in the report and linked it to the dashboard hyperlink (http://......). Issue I am facing is that everytime I click on the link it opens in another tab in the browser and I have many tabs in the report and everytime I click on dashboard link it will open in a new tab in the browser. My question is now - is there any way I can have the link open in the same browser tab rather than opening in the new browser tab?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @amahmud ,

You can turn on the 'custom link' and 'open custom link in same tab' options to open specific link on current tab.

Re: How to open a Text box link in the same tab rather than a new tab

Hi @v-shex-msft 

I actually wanted the other way around. Links to open in ths same Browser tabe > from Report to the Dashboard (NOT Dashboard Tile to Report as you showed)Open Link in Same tab.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plesae see the picture above. I have created a Text Box (DASHBOARD) and inserted the link of the Dashboard with Tiles. Now when I click on the Dashboard then it Opens up the Dashboard with Tiles in a different browser tab instead of the same browser tab. I want the link to open in the same Browser tab as the report.

 

Any Idea?

 

Thanks

Hi @amahmud ,

Nope, power bi not support to configure these. For your requirement, you can consider to change web browser setting to force open new link on same tab.
