How to put link to VIA reports on Dashboard

We are trying to figure out if it is possible to insert links (URLs) for custom Reports directly on user Dashboard.


Right now, we see that there is only 1 style option which is "Inline display".

1- Instead of inline reports, we would like to be able set parametric links so that every user which is eligible to access a certain report can access it via this URL on dashboard.


2- Also, since the url is to be parametric, every user will see a personalized result set from the same query.


Just to give you an idea, let's say that we want to create a report in order to display all subordinates (including indirect ones) of a manager. There will be a link belonging to this report in the user dashboard of Managers. Moreover, clicking the URL each manager will see only their subordinates. Hence every user will get a different result set from the same query.


Is this feasible with VIA?


Moreover, we observed there is an attribute named "URL parameters" in "Add component to Dashboard" popup. Is this attribute useful for reports as well? How?
