I'm trying to find out whether there is a available feature that allows me to go to a dashboard where I can enter a single value at which multiple searches are pointed. I want the results for those searches to populate multiple panels based on those searches. In my quiet, warm, softly-lit universe the XML would look like any other dashboard's, except there would be a variable in place of this value for all of the searches I want.
Does anyone have anything that approaches this functionality?
