Hi @anissabnk 

A dashboard's or form's label and description cannot be updated using tokens variable in simple XML, sadly.  Likely, could be done using java script.   I'm not sure about Dashboard studio.

It is possible to use tokens in HTML or panel titles, like in this example.

  <label>Token Example $field1$</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="dropdown" token="field1">
      <choice value="Jan 2023">Jan 2023</choice>
      <choice value="Feb 2023">Feb 2023</choice>
      <choice value="Mar 2023">Mar 2023</choice>
        <H1>token field1: $field1$</H1>
      <title>Month totals diff comparison $field1$</title>
          <query>| makeresults | eval time=_time | table time</query>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
        <option name="rangeColors">["0x53a051","0x0877a6","0xf8be34","0xf1813f","0xdc4e41"]</option>
        <option name="showTrendIndicator">0</option>

This does not meet your requirement but might be a possible workaround that's easy to implement.

Hope this helps
