Hello! I have one application which is used to track work done by employees.  I also have another application that is used to track the employees themselves . There is a many-to-one relationship set up between Work Done and Employees (every Employee can have many Works Done).

In the dashboard of the Work Done application, I would like to show a list of every Employee who has not submitted any work this week. Using summary fields, it's easy to create this report in the Employees table, but is there any way to get it to show up in the Work Done dashboard? I've created a report link field in the Work Done application that I think gets me a little closer, but I still can't figure out how to get it in the dashboard.

Thank you!

Try making a button which links to a URL.  Paste in the URL of the report and suffix it with &ifv=1



That suffix will strip off the extra headers associated with the report, such as the Table Bar.

I have to admit, I was skeptical, but that works! Thank you!

Only thing I would clarify is that you don't add a button that links to a URL, but you add a widget that embeds a webpage.

Thanks again!
