Help with templates and links

New to grafana and only know the basics…enough to break things. Running 7.0.3 from linux binary. I’ve used templating to create dashboards for all of my interfaces for my switches and tweaked everything as far as labels and visualizations and what not. They look great, exactly what I was looking for. Now I’m trying to make dashboards with panels that “link” to those panels…but can only seem to find ways to copy. For example, I want to have a dashboard with things specific to a server, so I have storage space, cpu load, and other things I create specifically for that server. I don’t really want to re-create a panel or copy it for interface usage, I just want to link to what I consider the original. Benefit being that if/when I update the original, that change is reflected in all things linked to it.

Am I missing something obvious?
