In fact we do have a version of cdash that allows us to do daily or weekly reports.  We would like it to be more general than it currently is.

"The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference
between taking one's work seriously and taking one's self seriously.
The first is imperative and the second is disastrous."

My current project has a number of "Nightly" tests that run for several days. The issue I'm having is that these builds are posted to CDash and only remain on the Nightly dashboard for about 24 hours. I really love for the dashboard to display a build until a newer build with the same name is submitted. Is this possible?

Not that I know of.  As you noticed, CDash currently only supports reporting build results on a day to day basis.  It would be nice if this behavior could be configured differently per build group: daily, weekly, last N builds, etc.  As things are now, the only workaround I can think of would be to resubmit the same .xml files day after day.
