Creating a dropdown menu on a dashboard

For ease of use and to tidy up the view menu, it would be useful for the platform to have a dropdown menu at dashboard level so information can be changed without swapping views.
For example, the re might be several status columns which might detail the Client or the work type. Instead of creating a number of views, it would be great if I could create a dropdown menu where you can select a category (Client/work type/etc) and then the specific element in that column?

I can think of a couple of different ways I would use these, between different projects and team members, so you have my vote as well.
