Can I customize a project dashboard with a link to create a specific type of work item?

Most of my users will be either working on existing work items or creating a custom type. Can I have a link or button on the dashboard to launch a new work item of that type on the dashboard? Of course they can always pull it down from the work item menu, but this will be more obvious for new users.

Yes, you can add an HTML widget to the dashboard and add the link or button there.  See this topic in the documentation on how to add a widget.

Ok, but what's the link to create a work item or the html-code to a button doing this?
