Lock widget to time frame

I would really like to Lock a Dashboard widget to a specific time frame. For example if i make a datacollection for data just within an hour or pr 6 hours, the data could be false if someone use it With another timespan.

Highlight/Colour widgets based on reaching certain limit/value shown

To notify someone visually when a certain/critical situation has been identified, it would be brilliant if you can highlight/colour a widget so you get the proper attention. E.g. host disconnections have been found the information mentions this is something you should investigate. How about defining there is a certain number of messages found and the widget switches it's colour to yellow/red?
