Standardize TARGIT URLs with Embedded Links

The way TARGIT currently builds out embedded links (using 2 hash-signs) is an incorrect URL. The information that appears after the first hash symbol is a fragment identifier, which can only be interpreted by the local web browser and not passed to the remote web server. The second hash sign breaks the URL, as a fragment cannot have a '#' in it.

My company and I have been trying to embed TARGIT dashboards in our mobile CRM platform, but the broken URL is preventing us from accomplishing this. I would imagine that other companies are facing this dilemma, and think that TARGIT should standardize URLs to be compatible across all browsers, in accordance with common web practice.

    Hi Meagan,

    From the TARGIT 2023 October release, embedded links will work with both '#/' and '##'.

  • Hi Meagan,

    We use the # in the fragment to identify embedded links in TARGIT. We have many customers running successfully with these URLs in 3rd party systems and don't consider this a bug and the URL to be incorrect. Unfortunately we cannot support all 3rd party systems at the moment. 

    Best regards / Ole

  • Hello Ole Dyring

    We initially submitted this "issue" while working with embedded links in a 3rd party app, but have since ended use of this app, so everything was working as needed. Unfortunately, we are having another issue with embedded links with "#", while using iOS. I am not sure exactly when this started, but it seems to be occurring on multiple iOS versions (tested with 15 and 17). The issue is that when clicking a link to launch in Safari, it is replacing the '#' with '%23', which does not load. If the link is pasted, it works as expected and it has continued to work in Android.

    I know that Targit does not troubleshoot iOS or 3rd party apps, but this seems like a big issue when dealing with these '#'s in URLs. Is Targit working on a newer way to use embedded links or have any suggestions for us?
