How to set the default time in timepicker based on a previous timepicker

I have a chart which has a time picker to look at the the volume of data indexed on all our master license servers. When you click on one of the hosts, a new panel appears with a chart and table based on the previous panel. I want to provide a timepicker for that panel and set the defaults to the time selected in the previous panel.

<input type="time" token="all_master_time" searchWhenChanged="true">
        <label></label>
        <default>
          <earliest>-7d@h</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
        </default>
      </input>

...

<panel ... >
  <input type="time" token="slavetime" searchWhenChanged="true">
        <label></label>
        <default>
          <earliest>$all_master_time.earliest$</earliest>
          <latest>$all_master_time.latest$</latest>
        </default>
      </input>

Is this possible?

If this is all in the same dashboard, then this will not work as you want because the value for <default> is only evaluated when the dashboard first loads.

Instead, you should set the value of slavetime to all_master_time when the drilldown occurs from the top-level panel.

<drilldown>
  <condition field="*">
    ...
    <set token="form.slavetime.earliest">$all_master_time.earliest$</set>
    <set token="form.slavetime.latest">$all_master_time.latest$</set>
  </condition>
</drilldown>

Do you have any guidance on if you want to pass the time picker results from one dashboard to a new dashboard?
