There is an appstore module called the Deeplink Module. You can use this module to build up urls like the ones you're talking about.
This module can introduce new security risks when things are not properly thought through though, so make sure you adhere to all the security best practices.
This is very promising, so for example, to get to the result below, I have to go through 5 or 6 clicks. By our partner using this module, we would be able to save a url for a result such as this? This would be wonderful! Would you say that it requires a lot of time to implement? We are all authenticated users on their web app.
Thanks for your sharing your knowledge. Is there an added cost to use the module?
Alternatively you can design a search and filter model which enable controlling the state of the search and filter options to persistent or non persistent, whichever the use case is. Let me know if you need more help with this.
You will have this functionality with MX9 when you use Data Grid 2. You can find it in appstore already.
