I have built a custom report using SOQL and displayed it using the DataTables JQuery plugin. Now I need to add a link to it on the Reports tab so that users see it alongside the rest of their reports. I don't want to create a custom tab, if possible, since I only want to "inject" this VF page as a report on the standard Reports tab.
An alternative you could consider is to create a home page component entitled 'Key reports' that you show on the sidebar. The component would contain a set of home page custom links ..
- some of which point at regular SFDC reports
- and one that would point at your VF page
- and perhaps one that simply reads as 'More ...' that links to the Reports tab
This way, users look on the sidebar first for the hot reports, including your cool JQuery report
