Hi Everyone,

 

Is it possible to add a link into an app interface to a shared folder?

 

Thank you,

T.

Hi @tommasoBicocchi ,

 

Yes you can do that. In your app, open the interface designer (View > Interface Designer) and with the Layout View selected select  "Link" from the add drop-down.

 

A new object will appear in your interface window, which you can edit by clicking on it. Then in the configuration window, you can change the text that appears there (mine was left as default - link (138)) and then you can add the link/filepath to that shared drive location to the file destination text box underneath.

Now in your app interface you will have a hyperlink showing, and if you click on it you will be taken to that location

Hello,

I just have alteryx designer updated to Version: 2022.3.1.395  (the version I used before was 2021 I think) and all my links to shared folders does not work. I tried to remove and set up links to folders from scratch, but that didn't help. Did anyone face this issue?
