If you set the target attribute to "_blank", the link will open in a new browser window or a new tab

And also a simple way is Press Ctrl button and then click on the link, it will open in different tab.

Hi @mvasireddy ,

thanks for your inputs, Yes, if I press the CTRL button the link will be open new tab, but I can't tell all users to press CTRL button to open new tab,

I need to set this to open new tab by default, I have added target atttibiute like below but its is not working for me, Can you help me with code.

[Standard Job Description |"" target="_blank"]




For me it is opening in new tab when I click on your above link.
