Alternative to a Hyperlink

Answered - Pending Review


I was hoping to possibly use a hyperlink type function for my use case so it is disappointing that SS doesn't have this capability.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to accomplish the following:

I am building a set of ISO27001 risk assessment sheets and I have a main sheet where there are different threat names listed. I have another glossary sheet that shows the same threat name and an associated description and examples. What I wanted to do was set up a mechanism where clicking on a name in the first sheet opens the second glossary sheet and highlights the row (or somehow displays the description and example from the glossary sheet). I thought that perhaps using an index to find the matching threat name in the glossary sheet would then allow me to identify the row and then I'd have a sheet name and row to somehow hyperlink from the first sheet to the correct row in the glossary sheet.





  • Hi!

    Would indexing the glossary description into the current sheet as another column be too much information? Any reason why it needs to link the user to another sheet?

    Hi @GrahamW

    I hope you're well and safe!

    It's possible by using a Premium App or maybe a 3rd-party service.

    Is that an option?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
