Hey @kenny, thanks for the feature request. There is a 3rd option, which is to add a new widget (to the dashboard we make for you) for whatever your needs are. Before an upgrade I might copy the dashboard to you have a backup in case we change things and it overwrites your changes.
Oh, good point! I've edited the request to include this idea. I really don't like modifying resources that are "controlled", so I think I'd prefer to do option 1 or 2.
