How to enable a new tab opening from within a dashboard?

Explorer

I would like to know if anyone has found a way that works best for them to enable a new tab opening from within a dashboard?
I have a working dashboard and would like to enable searches to open in a new tab, similarly to GET or POST requests within Workflow actions, instead of what I have right now which is 'Open in Search' and it proceeds to go to Splunk search in the same tab/window.
Is this a link target I would have to set up with eval tokens or what would be a good way to set it up?

Thank You

@dannyzen, all three Workflow Actions i.e. GET, POST and Search support opening result in new window. Click on the links to open Examples in Splunk Documentation which provide screenshot with Open Link in New Window and Search in New Window options as per the corresponding Workflow action.

to actually answer your question, and not give an RTFM answer:

use the target="blank" tag like this:

<a href="https://server:8000/en-US/app/search/search" target="blank"> <b>Search screen</b>
</a>
