To me, this is a no-brainer. I don’t get why Bubble doesn’t have this option.
Yes, I know there is a workaround, however, it is inconvenient.
There are many cases where if a user clicks a button or an icon, I want them to navigate to another website in another tab. It’s easiest to do this through a workflow element.
It’s weird stuff like this that makes me recommend Bubble to people with a BIG warning.
There’s a plugin you can use for free, I believe it’s called “URL Actions”… it adds a new workflow action called “Open URL in new tab”
Try it out, it should work for your use case.

There is actually a logical reason for this. When using the plugin it doesn’t work when the user has a popup blocker that way.
Hope that helps!

Use HTML element instead and use target="_blank" on an href to pop a new tab.
