I very much like the ability to include maps as widgets on the dashboard, but I am missing the ablilty to choose minimum level of severity (i.e. Average) and whether or not to include acknowledged events. These things are easily set for the full map view, but are not exposed in the setup of the widget.
In my case, I have a rotating dashboard between various screens, including one of the top map with my choice of severity and acknowledgement settings. This map shows no issues, but because there are a lot of acknowledged events, the widget on the main dashboard shows basically every location as having issues. It would be nice if they could be made to have the same filter.
