No, there's currently no way to pass info to DS via querystring - there's no programming logic you can use on the page, so no way to retrieve this value. This could be an interesting suggestion, especially to pre-select filter controls and date ranges.

Very useful to pre-select the info to be displayed and maybe even hide filter.

I thought the same, is a pity... Do you know another solution?

I'm trying to do this as well. This would allow me to reuse the same report and pass a variable via the URL. Instead, I'm going to have to create 280 pre-filtered individual reports.

I just took a note to add a feature to Da Vinci Tools where it would pre-select filter controls based on querystring parameters. Da Vinci Tools is a Chrome browser extension which brings several handy enhancements to GA, GTM and DS.
