Those both sound like interesting options. I did have the searchfilter
in mind. To go back to your example if we have a dashboard with five
reportlets, and want to to enter a filter value and have all five
reportlets update so that they are only showing line items that contain
the search value. We have to go into each reportlet, search for the term
then update the dashboard. It would be a huge time save to be able to
update all of them at once.
