How do i change the data source of a metric widget? 

You can 'add data' but this adds a new one. 

In my particular use case we can now copy and paste widgets between dashboards, however this is no way to edit the data, ie use the widget as a template.

For me, we have a standard project template, and want a standard dashboard to match the template. Re-creating the dashboard for each project is very time consuming. Would be so much faster if i could just edit the data of an existing widget.

This is particularly time consuming when multiple metrics are within a single widget
