Automation - Open Dashboard as a Trigger

I'm trying to ascertain whether I can force (trigger) Smartsheet to open a Dashboard based on a cell being edited in a sheet.

On my Payment Sheet, I have a column that users can select (via Dropdown) to generate a Certificate based on the data in the sheet. The Certificate (Smartsheet Dashboard) formats a number cells including value of claims, invoice number, who the contractor is etc. Currently, the Dashboard is accessible via the normal route on the left hand side.

I am hoping to have a new tab in Chrome open, with the Dashboard which a user can PDF and issue/save/print.

Any thoughts on this? I assume it can't be done.

    Thanks Genevieve,

    I think I'll just leave it so that users can navigate to the dashboard themselves. A hyperlink is good, but as new rows of data continues to be added, it becomes an administrative task to update which is what I'm trying to avoid.

    I'll submit a Enhancement Request as I think this Trigger could be a good addition.
