Is there a Gadget simliar to "Quick Links" that can be customized with URL links of my choice?

My intention is to link to certain Project Reports that I commonly use.

I don't like having to recreate the reports with parameters (Project or Filter) every time I view the report.

Try the "text" gadget - you can put html into that, with your links.

I seem to remember it's disabled in the default install, you need to go into admin -> plugins to enable it.

where is the text gadget?

I'm not an admin, how do I use the "Text" gadget? It doesn't not appear in my list of Jira Gadgets :(

Paul, I had one of our users ask me about such a gadget this morning as well, and I agree it would be a useful tool.  I don't like enabling the text gadget for everyone because of the security risks, and many of our users wouldn't know how to format a list of links anyway – even using the toolbar.  So, I made an official request to Atlassian for a custom links gadget: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-41424.  Please vote on this issue if you would like to see an official gadget as well.  Thanks.

Would add that you'll want to set up your links with the target=blank, otherwise the page will load within the gadget itself.  This will allow the page to open in a new tab

<a href="https://www.google.com/" target="_blank">google.com</a>

We use the text-gadget to provide different ind of link-lists, overview boxes, mini-portals,...

So just try the option suggested by Nic.
