Linking to Excel Sheet

I know there is a way to create a link so a user can hyperlink from a lookml dashboard out to an external spreadsheet but I can’t seem to find the details.

For example, let’s say I have a table w/ a bunch of marketing cost information. Users can clearly download or explore on that table, but in some instances I want them to be able to link to an external excel spreadsheet that has data definitions or other details that are useful but not easily included in looker.

I’ve seen other users create a link w/in the table to external excel sheets along these lines.

Hey @stevesilvercar - there’s a links parameter that allows you to define any links from a dimension or measure. This should do the trick for you! There’s no notion of linking specially or specifically to an external excel sheet, but links should give the desired functionality.
