How to Link Dashboard with URL to enable it to open in the same explorer page

+1 vote

I have placed a Workbook onto a Dashboard and created a URL action. Once the user clicks on the link it should take them to the link provided.

The issue is, when the user clicks on the link, it opens a new tab within the browser. I do not want it to do this. My Landing page goes through several pages, so imagine the user frustration when opening a new tab every click.

Can anyone advise how I can add an Action URL that will open in the same tab the user is currently in?
