A simple task that takes a few more steps than maybe you’d think in Tableau. Shout out to Eva Murray (@TriMyData) for this technique.
Create a calculated field containing the text you want to be clickable.
Drag the hyperlink field onto a worksheet, more specifically, onto the text marks card. Format the text however you want.
(I recommend deleting everything in the tooltip too as it’s not really needed here)
Add the hyperlink worksheet to a dashboard.
Add a URL Action by going to Dashboard > Actions > Add Action > Go to URL.
– Change the run action to ‘Select’,
– Put in the link of the URL you want the user to be directed to,
– Select new browser tab in the URL target if you want the link to be opened in a new browser.
