Proceed to the "Build Your Card" page by clicking on the "Edit Card" button.

In a separate browser tab or window, log in to Roambi Cloud and click on the "Create Analytics" button.  This should take you to your Projects page:



Step 7:

Click on the information button of the RBI to which you would like to link to from your Card view.  This reveals the details about that RBI.


Step 8:

Click on the "Links" button to reveal the "Sharing" and "Application" links for this RBI.



Step 9:

Copy the "Application" link.

Step 10:

Return to your original browser with the Card editor and paste the "Application" link in the box titled, "Link".

Tapping a block to give it focus and then tapping the hyperlink symbol will download and open the linked RBI.
