if you create a new poject and want to use existing dashboards, then you must copy all filters and switch the project-key in the queries. And you must copy the dashboards and switch the filters in the filtergadgets and switch the project-key in the activitystreamgadget etc. That means a lot of work. Especially when something changes and the changes should be applied to all copied dashboards.

Is it possible to create something like a Dashboard-Template? All gadgets (Filters, Stream etc.) at the dashboard can use the defined placeholder like "{Project}". Then you can create a dashboard from the Dashboard-Template and specify the placeholder "{Project}" = "JRA". That would be awesome if you want the same dashboard for all projects you are involved. And changes at the Dashboard-Template will be applied to all derived dashboards.

Is there something like that already?

Best regards,

As far as I know, no. If you want it, you may have to code it out yourself.

It would be so useful...
