How to make a URL in a Google Analytics report open link on my website?

We have a report in Google Analytics that lists pages on our website with errors. We get hundreds of these pages each day. The event label displays the full URL. However, currently, we have to copy and paste each URL which adds time to the process. Is there a way to setup Google Analytics, so the links to our error pages become clickable and a new window opens with the corresponding page on our website?

Try adding 'Page' as a Secondary Dimension for an Event Label Report or as a Third Dimension in Custom Reports.  'Page' adds a tiny window icon to the right side of each relative URL entry.  If you click it, a pop-up browser window will show the actual website content.

Hi Cedric,

 

I see how to do this in a standard report. But is there a way to do this on a widget in a custom dashboard?

For a custom widget, you'll need to add the Page Dimension to the custom report.  As for the widget data shown, only the first dimension will show while in the Dashboard.  Once clicked, you'll see the custom report requested in full.  BTW, you don't need to re-add the widget.
