Automate: dashboard tiles

I'd like to be able to create a wall of tiles showing the high-level status of node queries.

So, i could create a query to show all my DEV nodes, another for QA, and one for PROD, for example. Then my dashboard would have a tile for each query, showing the status circle, perhaps, and link into the client run page for that query.

That way i could see the status of my whole chef universe, separated by whatever queries i want to create, all at a glance.

    +1 but our teams would want just "their" nodes (by policy group or attribute) based on either a dashboard-Id (stored in A2) or URL query.
