I've had a look at the new UX and tried to build replacement dashboards for my current model. It doesn't seem possible to select list content for a grid. You can only select module views.
List views are very useful (or essential in my case) because a selection of my users need to edit list content. If I can't display this on a dashboard, these users cannot fulfil their role in the model, as they are not full model builders / admins and cannot see the lists.
