Filter Data on SQL Widgets other options

Currently there is the @createdFilter option. 
Are we limited to just this option or can we create more?

    Totally agree with Brian here, these are the most common types of slicing my users want to do within cube based reports in Excel. Would make total sense to introduce these other options to assist with this.

    It would be really great if there is a possibility to set additional SQL variables which can be used as a filter - similiar to @UserId or @IsScoped . e.g. define  @filter variable in the JQuery call like as 

       "dateFilterType": "NoFilter",
       "queryId": "1FE7DECA-XXXX-YYYY-ZZZZ-1F7EF7604D62"   
       "customerVariables":   { list of varname: varvalue}   


    Changing  the "/Dashboard/GetDashboardQueryData" API call from "get" to "post" allowing that a comprehensive SQL query can be submitted ;) - in this case you can define whatever variable you need ;)

    Add this in the UI for the Dashboard widgets, with the option to have it visible or not. For example if I want to filter by "This Month" but I do not want the user to change it, I'd set it in the widget properties and keep it invisible. Same applies to the other requested slicers. This would make it easy to have a generic SQL Query that is then used with different filters on different Dashboard pages.
