    HTML & Grid Reports - Image Links Need To Fire Up In New Window Not Same Window

    Asked by markashton on July 15, 2013 at 05:23 AM

    Hi,

    Since the filepicker integration there has been a subtle change to link status ...

    Images & Video links now fire up in the same window i.e. "target= _self" behaviour. This is not as desirable as the previous behaviour which was to fire up in a new window i.e. "target=_blank"

    Would you be kind enough to reinstate the original behaviour of links firing into a new window so that you never lost the report page.

    Thanks Mark

    I understand how important it is to have the uploaded image open in new window.

    I am forwarding your request to our dev team. As soon as there are any update on this, you will get the notification via this thread.

    Thanks,

    Hi mark, this should be fixed already. I was able to open links to a new tab rather than the same window. You have to recreate your reports in order to get the changes.

    Let us know if the problem still persist.

    Thanks,
    Kenneth

    Hi mark, just found out that recreating the reports cant fixed the problem.
    The "opening-to-newtab" will only work to new/latest submissions from your form.
    So you have to do some new submission to make the changes on the links work.

    Thanks,
