It would be really useful if we could use variables in NRQL queries on insights dashboards, that could then be set in the dashboard to modify all of the queries used on that dashboard. For example, a query could look something like this
select * from Table where someField = $variableA
And then have a text field on the dashboard where $variableA can be defined. Similar to the filter feature in dashboards, except something that can be used for more than just blanket filtering.
