Next version of NextReports Server will allow to select a 'Global Settings' action for dashboards.
This means we will be able to select some properties to all widgets from a dashboard. Two properties are always the same for any widgets: timeout and refresh time. Besides these two, if there are some common parameters used by all widgets, then those parameters can be also set .
Two parameters are considered the same if they have the same name, type, selection, manual source (if any), default source (if any), and some properties like hidden property, procedure parameter, preview value. Some properties may be different, like runtime name, description or mandatory setting.
This 'Global Settings' can be used for those dashboards which have a business of themselves, meaning that some common parameters for more widgets are present.
