Enhancement Request: put list filter criteria into URL query string to facilitate sharing

Thursday, February 12, 2015 4:19:27 PM
Currently, the only way to share a filtered list view is to save the filter.  That requires four clicks plus typing, and -- more importantly -- can result in an unmanageable list of saved and shared filters.  Not all filters are worth saving for the long term.

Please put filter criteria into the page's query string when the user clicks on the button "Filter", and please load any such filter when a page is loaded.

This will enable people to quickly and easily share a custom-filtered list by just copy-pasting the page URL address into an email or chat box.  And, they won't have to worry about whether that particular filter had already been saved.  They won't have to think about directing the recipient to a particular saved filter in the UI.  And they won't have to worry about deleting that filter after its usefulness has expired.
