Create a matrix to navigate report pages

Hello I'm trying to create a page at the beginning of the report containing a matrix that allows me to navigate all the pages.  It'd be something like this where "Page x" is clickable and directs you to the corresponding page on the report. Is there a way to do this ina matrix form? Thank you

Hi @SuchCT 

You can't really do this as a Matrix, only Buttons, Shapes and Images have an "Action" when you click them which you can set to "Page Navigation" to go to a specific page.

However you could mimic the matrix look in a number of ways.

Replace the "Page 1"  "Page 5" text etc. with Buttons which go to the specific page.

Place a transparent shape over the existing text, which again has an action to go to the page you want.

If this is just a hard coded matrix layout the buttons or image overlay should be fairly straightforward. If however the matrix is being populated from data which may change over time it could get more complex. 

Take a look at Buttons Shares and Images actions, and you should be able to design a first menu page, remember to palace a "back" button on each target page, then hide the individual pages for a simple menu front-end.

Hope this helps

Thank you, if there is no way touse a matrix using buttons is a great alternative to mimic it.
