    How to use Action Link to navigate directly to Requisition No/Candidate Id on Staffing Webtop?

    Hi All,

    Suppose we have a table view as

    Requisition NO Candidate ID
    00123145 123456
    00154387 124567

    How to configure these numbers as hyperlink so that we click it directly opens up the Staffing Webtop for that Requisition No/Candidate ID?

      I bet this needs to go to the ideas for voting.  But not 100% sure.  Great to know how to do this...

      Try using action links using deep linking URL. This will work in OBI but not in excel export thou.

        Can you help us with any examples for the same?
