Can you favourite dashboards

Influencer

I'm pretty sure I already know the answer to this, but thought I would throw it out there. Does anyone know of a way to favourite dashboards? (or indeed any group of knowledge objects)

For example if I have 700 saved searches, I'd love to be able to have a favourites list!

The short answer is no, you cant. Outside the box thinking says you need a naming convention.

I often name searches like below to achieve this.

0000 - {search name here}
SUMMARY INDEX SEARCH - SCHEDULED - DO NOT RUN - {search name here}
TEAM NAME HERE - SEARCH NAME HERE
etc.

That would be nice, but we have hundreds of users so any naming convention will fall apart in about a day 🙂

OK so the best I could do was advise users to create their own 'favourites dashboard' with following steps:
1. They have to maintain their own csv list (eg dashboardfaves.csv). The csv has a single column with the names of the dashboards they want to 'favourite'. They manage the lookup file themselves
2. They make their own dashboard panel with the query |inputlookup dashboardfaves.csv
3. They add the following drilldown tag to the dashboard

 <drilldown  target="My New Window">
      <link>
          $click.value$
      </link>
</drilldown>

Hacky but it works
