Hi Brad Smith,
Yes, indeed that's doable!
I encourage you to read the following threads, they are a great resource for what you are looking for:

I too was looking for a way to set a parameter to a particular value using the URL.
However as you mentioned - all posts about this subject are mixing up parameters/dimension/filters, and they explain how to set a value of an existing dimension, but not a value of a parameter.
I found out that Tableau sets the parameter values by a sequence reference (example: '[Parameters].[Parameter 1]', '[Parameters].[Parameter 2]'...), rather than by the name. Therefore if for example you have only one parameter in your workbook, you can easily set your parameter in the following way:

I tried setting my URL action as such, but it's not passing the parameter to the report:
.../JobApprovedOrders?Project+Manager=<Project Manager>&[Parameters].[Parameter 1]=<Parameters.Week 1>&[Parameters].[Parameter 2]=<Parameters.Week 2>
I've tried variations such as
...&[Parameters].[Week 1]=<Parameters.Week 1>&[Parameters].[Week 2]=<Parameters.Week 2>
with no luck.
Is this the correct syntax??
Yes in principle that should be it.
So for example if you wanted to set the paramter to "YourValue" you would do the following:
If you have multiple parameters, then you first need to play around to find the sequence of each parameter.
