Hi @Jon_L - we're looking at various ways that scheduled items can be customized, including the concept of templates for scheduled reports that would allow repeatable customizations (like removing the footer or other links from scheduled emails). We're also planning to introduce a presentation mode that introduce a more tightly controlled version of the Dashboard. Between these two features, which are able to wrap up many requests together, we should hit the use case you're looking for.
Just to help in our thinking, could folks on this thread share more about issues you find with filters being included? Is it primarily aesthetics or an issue with leaking information that you don't want clients to see?
