Single Button / Link Card

Hello.

It would be really useful for many of our dashboards to be able to create a “button” or “big link” card.

I have tried to create a “Number” card, but that doesn’t seem to support links. What I would want ideally is a card that would essentially turn a URL string into a button.

For sizing on a dashboard I would imagine that it could be as small as 1x1 or 2x1 (WxH) so you could fit a couple of them in the top of a dashboard. Alternatively, they could be placed around the top where the filters are placed, but I would imagine that to be a bigger change.

Right now the only way to have a link in a card is to have the card styled as a table, but that will make the link really small, take up a lot of space, show the column name etc.

I have attached a suggestion as to how this could look.

@flamber Ah sorry - forgot to specify that I want to be able to generate the link from a query.

The issue is that we have dashboards where we view details for specific customers, and they have links to other tools in the tables. So I would like to be able to generate a link/button from SQL like…

SELECT
    some_sort_of_link
FROM
    some_table
WHERE
    {{field_filter}}
