Create a Project with sub folder?

My supervisor wants to have a folder structure where the Dashboard sits on the list with the reports linked off it are in a sub folder so it is all neat and tidy.  (see image for example)

If I create them in the same project then I can pick an image and set the action to Go to Report and add parameters but when I deploy I add a /Sub Reports to the TargetReportFolder so they deploy into the sub folder.  Then when I deploy the Dashboard I take the /Sub Reports out so I get the desired look but the links won't work.  They only work if the Dashboard and the sub reports are in the same folder.  Is there a way around this?  If I make the action a Go to URL then I can't set the parameters and I want to set them by the user logged in.

sub report folder structure
Any replies either helping or letting me know that this is impossible are greatly appreciated!!!

It is actually possible to pass parameters through the URL so it should be possible to implement the Go To URL action and get it working as you need.  The URL can be created through an expression, allowing you to construct the parameter part dependant on the user ID.

Here's an example of a URL with parameters:

http://myrshost/ReportServer?/AdventureWorks 2008R2/Employee_Sales_Summary_2008R2&ReportMonth=3&ReportYear=2008

I haven't implemented this yet but I'll wait to see if my supervisor wants to move the reports into a subfolder.  Thanks!!!
