Noob question - Is there any tutorial for how to add panel using loki?

Is there any tutorial for how to add panel using loki?
I have a none-standard logfile it seems, each line is presented as a variable in the panel.

I want to split it up in to different columns, like: time&date, notification urgency(info/error/warning, etc), source, message

if i press edit on the panel, i get the following:

where did you get this dashboard from?

This is the one: Loki Dashboard | Grafana Labs

Maybe i should have created one from scratch?

Its more fun and educational to start from scratch imo

The items you highlighted above are dashboard variables

Yes, i totally agree, but at the same time, you should have a look at whats existing to not invent the wheel from scratch. At least get some inspiration.

But, my question still stands, is there any tutorial that explains this?
I want to start from scratch, but its not intuitive enough for me, so i need a tutorial of some sort.
