Link from a Home Page to a Dashboard

Hello Hive Mind!

I need to place a link on a Home Page that links to a Dashboard. Button or Link doesn't matter, but a Button would display and fit better.

Using a Button Bar, I click add a new Button, and I have 3 options, New Record, Report, or Page.  Each of these 3 do not list my Dashboard, and while they provide a field for entering a URL, you cannot, and using it, displays a dropdown, that only lists Code Pages, Home Page (Old), and Home Pages... not Dashboard type pages.

This same behavior happens when creating a new Link on a Link Bar too.

Any ideas on how to put a button/link on a Home Page to link to a Dashboard?

Thanks!

Jeff

  • Hi Jeff,

    You should be able to navigate to the dashboard, copy the URL and then paste it into the URL input of a button; we've done this on a few of our apps.  Once you save the button you can relabel it so it doesn't use the URL as the label.

    Best,

    Chris

      Thank you Chris! I had tried to do that, but ... earlier attempts were thwarted because the URL word on the Page tab didn't look like a link or something that was functional... and I'd forgotten it was. Perhaps an opportunity to change the UI a little to reflect that? It is working now - thank you again!
