You can do this with a workflow action

i mean a field to be clickable for e.g. the admin field in the sample shown should be a clickable link and it should lead to an external link.. Is it possible? i dont want it be in a triangular dropdown next to the events viewer.

The only way to do that would be to have some custom javascript in your app

or to use a table and sideview redirector module. This is how I've implemented similar behaviour for customers in the past

No, they are different modules. But it depends what functionality you want. If you want the drop down options then you may as well use workflow actions... if you want the whole event then stick to eventviewer or include _raw in the table (which won't be too pretty)
