To achieve this, you can use the following code:

  1. Add a class to the anchor link you want to click on, for example:
<a href="#accordion2" class="scroll-to-accordion">Go to Accordion 2</a>
  1. Add an id attribute to the accordion or tab you want to scroll to, for example:
<div id="accordion2" class="accordion-item">
  <h3 class="accordion-header">Accordion 2</h3>
  <div class="accordion-content">
    <p>Content of accordion 2 goes here</p>
  1. Use jQuery code to handle the click event on the anchor link, scroll to the desired accordion/tabs, and open it:
$(document).ready(function() {
  $('.scroll-to-accordion').click(function(event) {
    event.preventDefault(); //prevent default anchor behavior
    var href = $(this).attr('href'); //get the href attribute value
    $('html, body').animate({
      scrollTop: $(href).offset().top //scroll to the desired accordion/tab
    }, 500, function() {
       $(href + ' .accordion-header').trigger('click'); //click to open the accordion/tab

This code will animate the scrolling to the desired accordion/tab and trigger a click event to open it. You can adjust the duration of the scroll animation by changing the value of the second argument of the animate() function.
