Unable to run query containing gentimes from dashboard



I am using below to generate a date information which I shall later use:

| makeresults
| eval startDate=strftime(relativetime(time,"-4y@y"),"%m/%d/%Y")
| eval endDate=strftime(relativetime(time,"+2w@w"),"%m/%d/%Y")
| fields startDate, endDate
| map search="| gentimes start=\"$startDate$\" end=\"$endDate$\" increment=0d
| eval AsOfDate=strftime(starttime,\"%Y-%m-%d\")
| sort AsOfDate
| fields AsOfDate"
| eval Weekday=strftime(strptime(AsOfDate, "%Y-%m-%d"), "%A")
| eval flag=case(strptime(AsOfDate,"%Y-%m-%d")>now(),"future",1==1,"past")
| fields AsOfDate, Weekday , flag

This works fine on search but does not work from within dashboard query (Within dashboard query I replaced > & < with corresponding html tags).

When run from dashboard query I keep getting "Could not create search" (appears it has not been able to resolve startDate and endDate)

Is there any way I can save above & refer in dashboard (for joining to other queries) ?

Looks like map command does not work with single $. I tried $$ for my variables and it worked. Testing further.
