It would be nice to be able to select a different variable from the current device when editing a widget

I am creating metric widgets for temp/humidity sensors. When I duplicate the temp widget to make the humidity widget I have to delete the variable, then search for the device and select the other variable.

It would be nice to be able to choose a different variable from the same device as short-cut.

This would be very helpful in charts. We have devices with 8 variables and after setting all the colours etc it would be nice to duplicate the widget and then just change the device those 8 variables are coming from rather than having to delete and add them all again, and set the colours.

I know dynamic dashboards could do this but our users like seeing multiple charts at once to compare them.

Thanks for your suggestion, we will add it to our feature request list for future improvements to our platform.
