Javascript for Digital Dashboards

  • Javascript for Digital Dashboards

    Posted by Doug McLean on March 13, 2021 at 3:32 pm

    I have a collection of Dashboards that I use for my projects. They all have the same basic layout and have buttons for various places that I want to link too.
    Our folder structure is also set up in a consistent manner.
    Does anyone have any JavaScript that I can run to automatically set these links up so I don’t have to set up 10 hyperlinks every time I use one of my Dashboards?

    I have used JavaScript for making dashboards more dynamic, but I don’t know of a way to automate the creation of hyperlinks. I do have an idea that might work, but it depends on how your files are named. Are the files always named the same thing (Drawings.pdf, Specifications.pdf, etc.) or are they project-specific (ProjectName_Drawings.pdf, ProjectName_Specifications.pdf, etc.) or do they have random names every time?

    Yes, most of them are the same.

    They will go to a specific sub folder within our Estimate folder.

    Everything is consistent. Everything is all contained within the same parent folder.
