 How about leaving the auto-redirect with JS, and rewriting that link to
 the dashboard in a more explanatory way.
 You should be redirect to LINK automatically.

 Agreeing with DH-Shredder, the link should match the redirect. And unless
 there's going to be a lag between the redirect no other links seem

 Agreeing with OP (sparkweb) as well, it would be nice to have the ability
 to link elsewhere. I would propose rather than adding links that an option
 be created to override the location (for both the link and redirect.)
