            • Source Depot

              Similar to github, it would be awesome to be able to source data from source depot. A lot of internal teams will adopt.

              • Allow pinning of a shared dashboard's reports to a new personal dashboard

                Seems like I can't pin a chart from another persons shared dashboard to my new personal dashboard. IT would be nice to be able to use their report on my own personal version of the dashboard.
