Hi,

You can create a visualforce tab and bind visualforce page to it.

Here is documentation for the same: https://login.salesforce.com/help/doc/en/pages_tabs_create.htm

I tried to create a visual force tab and created a visual force page with the link
To the dasboard
<apex:outputLink value="your URL" target="_blank">dashboard</apex:outputLink>
But when I click the tab I see the link Dashboard in the page and only if I click that it is taking the to dashboard.what shold be done to directly open the dashboard once the tab is clicked.

Try target= "_parent"

Here are the different target options you can use.

IF i try target=_parent or target=_self it opens in the same frame but again it opens only on click. and i would like to this apex page to be loaded in a new page as soon as the tab is clicked with out clicking any hyperlink.
