I haven't gone much beyond what you have with TOC's. This is the best tutorial on creating TOC's in Tableau that I've seen: Applied Visual Analytics: Making a Reusable Tableau Table Contents.
Personally, I find it easier to make a regular webpage as a landing page for various rather than using dashboard actions. The advantage to the above tutorial is that you could actually make URL a field in your data, and add and remove links as needed. But I think you still have to go through and set up the action the first time.
All this said, it depends a bit on how crafty you want to be with this. If you have hundreds of dashboards, there may be some advantage in actually setting up the server analysis database, and using it to automatically pre-populate your TOC using TabCMD. Here's a few links related to that, if you want to go as far as scripting it:
(Edit: these links aren't direct instructions I'm afraid. You'd need a TabCMD script to download the names and URL's of all your workbooks, and another one to upload those as a data source that could be read by your TOC workbook. You can only do this by first enabling the Postgre database on your server for query, which is what the links above get at).
Hope this helps,
Are you looking at using the table of contents to redirect to a html page or to a different dashboard?

Thanks Wasiq - this looks great! I like the large icons. On the workbook I am experimenting with, I also added a 'return to home' icon on each page to allow the user to easily navigate to the TOC.
