Set up an Entity Action Flow with an End Form Session Step . This example shows how the End Form Session Step will navigate to a dashboard that displays information gathered from related information on a report. First, create an Entity Data Type , create a User Action from the configuration folder , and two separate flows.  This example assumes that the report or dashboard that the End Form Session Step navigates to has already been created.
