I'd like there to be a new option in the dashboard widget settings to allow the choice of whether shortcut links are opened in a new tab or the same tab.
This includes Smartsheet items (which currently don't open in new tab).
We love this idea too! We know small things like opening items in a separate tab really matter to the overall experience. If we believe we can make this idea a reality, we'll plan to update the status here.
We get requests for this specific feature from our users. It would be great to see it implemented soon. Thank you.
As a workaround you can try using the website option on the Shortcut Widget and Paste the Smartsheet Item link in the Link address. It will always open the smartsheet item in a new tab.
I just wanted to suggest an improvement to dashboards, specifically. It would be very nice to open up links to other dashboards/sheets/miscellaneous links in new tabs, or to at least have that as an option (ie- right click option).
I have noticed that some things open in new tabs, but it is very tedious to have to open a bookmarked dashboard, and then click that to go to a sheet, and it takes you there on the same tab. It means I have to keep clicking on my dashboard links to get to other sheets, and it takes away from the usefulness of dashboards as a 'one-stop-shop' by not having this feature.
I hope that this can be implemented soon, as this would be a major efficiency improvement! Thank you to all of your dev group for the continuous improvements, and for listening to your customer suggestions!
A workaround: I started linking them via the quick links feature as a "website," this opens in a new tab, rather than a Smartsheet sheet, which opens in the same tab. The inability to open in new tab from a dashboard link has driven me a bit crazy for a while!!
Thank you for submitting!!

Adding links to sheets, reports, or dashboards is a great function. However, when the link is clicked on, it opens the link in the current tab and this messes up work flow. This could be improved if there was an option to open the link in a new tab instead of replacing the current tab.
Our team’s dashboards are set up as our central hub to access important data and shortcuts. Would be awesome to be able to click into a shortcut and have it open in a new tab so the user is not directed away from the DB. Yes, they could hypothetically just hit the “back” button or re-open the DB, but when you’ve got DBs with as much data on them as we do, the load time is terrible!

I would like to have an option to copy the form to be able to edit the copied form without impacting the format of the original document. I recently spent three to four hours to create a form. I needed to duplicate the created form to edit and create a new form with some edits. I was unable to do so.
I have a sheet which is full of formulas pulling data from a number of different sheets in order to graph the data onto a dashboard. I have noticed some issues when looking at the graph on the dashboard recently and have just figured out it is because the sheet requires updating. A few of my formulae reference TODAY(), to…
Currently, a dashboard's components do not belong to the dashboard's owner. If another user adds or edits a widget on a dashboard, that widget does not belong to the dashboard's owner. Instead, it belongs to the person who added the widget. This means that if a dashboard changes ownership, the dashboard will break when the…
