How can we improve Power BI?

Allow Hyperlinks in Text Boxes to Open in Same Tab

This would allow for intra report navigation and allow users to jump to different dashboards/pages from within the report.

    Yes please! We need this option for hyperlinks in Text Box and anywhere where a custom web URL action is permitted, such as in a Button action.

    It shouldn't be that hard. I am saying it because there is already such an option in a dashboard tile. When you set the Custom Action of a tile to an external link, there is an option to open the link in the same tab.

    What we need, Microsoft, is to add similar option to report features where an external hyperlink is accepted.

    Please add this feature, if we have multiple hyperlink then user gets confuesed if every link open in new tab.

    Please add this feature....meanwhile does anyone have a workaround?

    This functionality will be helpful in our project as we need to jump to different dashboards without opening it to new tab.

    This would really help our development and user experience, and should really be an OOTB experience. Please add this functionality to the next release.

    I agree - please prioritise PB team. I would have thought for any large scale development - this would be a MUST have, providing a seamless feel of one interactive solution - rather than multiple dashboards/Reports scattered across your browser after a couple of clicks!
