Bug/Error? Report widget on dashboard doesn't link to specific row

Bug/Error? Report widget on dashboard doesn't link to specific row

I created a report that includes the "Sheet Name" column. The auto-generated links in this column go directly to the specific row on the sheet it's linking to.

However, when I add the report as a widget on a dashboard, the links open up the sheet but they don't go to the specific rows. Seems like a bug/error.

This happens to matter how I set up the widget. I have tried every option in the "When this widget is clicked" option (do nothing, go to source report, etc).

    Hi Su,

    Unfortunately, it's not possible at the moment to have a report open the specific row, but it's an excellent idea!

  • Thanks for your reply but I'm not looking for the report to open up to a specific row, I am looking for the "Sheet Name" link on the report to open up a specific row on the main sheet. Which it does and that's great! EXCEPT when that report is within a widget on a dashboard.


    Why does the link work when you click on it within the report but not when you click on it within the widget? The widget's link opens up the desired sheet but doesn't go to the row.

    Ok.

    Yes, that is what I meant, as well.

    It doesn't work in a Dashboard because you select what will happen if you click anywhere on the report.

    It can open the report or a specific sheet/Object/Link.

    Make sense?

  • I think you are referring to the Advanced Options for the widgets, but that is not what I mean. I can set the report-widget to "When this widget is clicked on [Do nothing (no action)]". Then the majority of the widget is unclickable, but the links in the "Sheet Name" column are still active.

    This is why it seems like a bug. Those links are operational outside of the widget's settings. The links work within the report page but do not work when the report is in a widget.

    Ok.

    I follow now! Yes, that could be a bug or intentional.

    It would be an excellent enhancement.
