Dashboard filters: Change the order, and change filter field.

Operational Dashboards


Two suggestions for improving the use of filters on dashboards:

1) Change the order filters appear in.
For the example shown below. If I want to change the order of the filters such that 'Industry and Sector' appears first, with 'Business Area' and 'Office Responsible' after, I would need to delete the first two filters, then create them all over again to get the order I want. For complicated filters it can be very tedious and hard to write every single filter again.
The order of the filters cannot be easily changed

2) Change the field of an existing filter.
Say I want to change the filter 'Office responsible' to test for 'Office Location'. When I click 'Edit Filter' I only get shown the existing 'Display Label' and 'Filter Options' (see below). I would like to change the field, without having to delete the existing filter and creating a new one. This should be possible right?
I can't edit the field used in the filter
I would have to create a new filter

What are your thoughts? Please let me know if there are simple solutions to this issue that I might be unaware of :)
