Unable to create URL actions on multiple target Web Page Objects in a dashboard.


  • Tableau Desktop
  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Online


As a possible workaround, add the images as custom shapes to create a visualization that can be used as a viz in tooltip. See Create Views in Tooltips (Viz in Tooltip)

In order to make the custom shape look the best, consider the following tips:
  • On the main worksheet, the maxheight and maxwidth of the viz in tooltip should match the resolution of the image
  • On the viz in tooltip worksheet, click Size on the Marks card and move the slider to the right to decrease the white space around the image


URL actions will always be applied to the first web page object created within a dashboard. There is no way to define a target web page object.
