It would be ideal for dashboards to be able to pull data from a feature service hosted within an ArcGIS Online web mapping application instead of only from web maps. By embedding a web application into a Dashboard, users are able to use the same widgets that they use within the web application alone (such as smart editor). However, it is not as useful as having the web map added into the Dashboard, since the widget filtering that is normally utilized within a web map is not available through a web app.

Alternatively, adding a feature service to a dashboard without adding a web map would have the same effect.

I agree about being able to pull in a web mapping app to the Op's Dashboard app.  In the web mapping app I can add widgets such as a splash screen and it would be nice to have the dashboard consume it.

There is no requirement for a dashboard to include a map for its data sources. When configuring your elements, simply click the 'Select Layer' button and you will be able to browse for map and feature layers.
