SSRS: Collapse Parameters Pane by Default Using URL Parameters

If you have an SSRS report deployed to a Report Server you can use URL parameters to link to it in such a way that the parameters pane is collapsed by default. This can be helpful especially when your clients aren't likely to use it very frequently and if it takes up a lot of space on the screen.

All you have to do is add on the following to the end of your report URL:

https://server/reports/report/FolderName/ReportName?rc:Parameters=Collapsed
