Switching between dashboard while keeping the time range selection

I want to move from a one, long, dashboard to many smaller dashboards.
The problem, that every time a user switches from one dashboard to the other, the time range selection, and templates values - reset to default. This is annoying, as finding the relevant time range takes time. Am I’m doing it wrong?

You can go to dashboard setting and create links to the other dashboard, links can preserve time range and variables

Thanks
It will be nice if the dashboard panel type can support this (can it?)
