Displaying reports programatically

If I had a publishing client that has 20 different magazines, they might well want 3-5 key reports/dashboards for each magazine.
I don't think senior execs are going to use the [Customise] button to customise their own filters, but I don't want to create 60 - 100 reports!
I know I can build links using pv0 etc, but I wondered what you guys think is best practice for this kind of issue?

Idealy I'd like to control both the filters and the grouping so I could use one report for multiple purposes.
Hi Philip,

The best practice would be to maintain different reports with different customizations. Using URL parameters like pv0 is also fine, but it will not give you complete control.

You might also want to check out the new Analytics REST API ( for programmatic API access to salesforce reports.
