How to view alert silences in a dashboard

Hi - I’m testing out grafana as a candidate for a dispatch dashboard where alerts come in and the dispatcher assigns the alert to a support person and then silences the alert.

Currently it seems like the only way to tell if an alert has been silenced is to look at the “Silences” tab on the Alerting page.

Is there any way to view that an alert instance has been silenced on a dashboard using the Alert List panel?

I see this grafana issue tracking the ability to filter out silenced alerts: Alerting: allow filtering silenced alerts in Alert List Panel · Issue #43855 · grafana/grafana · GitHub This would definitely help, but it might be nice to still have the silenced alert on the dashboard, but be able to tell it was already handled.
