Is there a way to add a link for an external site on the dashboard? I have some of my reports posted on our portal. I want users to click on the link to access those reports.
I see that I can add another HTML page using composer on dashboard dashboard. This will add an extraclick for users. Is there a way to add a new link on public dashboard itself?
 
I saw the following but it doesnt solve my problem.

You can create a URL in the Managed Reporting to call an exteral site. In the Dashboard you can then setup a content block and add the URL call. Also, there is an option in the Dashboard toolbar/toolbox which allows you to add links in the Dashboard.
If you have any additional questions you can open a case with Technical Support for further assistance.

The simple way of doing that would be to have a redirect which is triggered by the onLoad event in the html page that you call from the dashboard.
