Populate Dashboard Panels based on Form Input

Path Finder

I've built a dashboard with a bunch of panels that report on various data points for a given customer account. I'd like to add a form field to the dashboard where a user can enter an account name and all of the panels report based on that account name, rather than the hard-coded account name I used to build the initial dashboard. How can I do this?

I figured out how to add a form field by changing to

and adding a field set, but have no idea how to make all of the panels run based on the input.





ABCAccount

I really just need to figure out how to pass the value from the account input into those queries/panels.
