    Agreed - this would remove the need for a good portion of our existing triggers

    Don,

    This is a really powerful feature having the ability to really mash-up URL's with filters.  Please consider it as ticket worthy.  We are doing some financial reports and it would amazing to look at report and a chart and see a spike in productivity and send the producer directly to SG with a filter that shows the producer all the notes that happened on the day of that spike of productivity.

    Thanks guys.  I made ticket 5582 on our end a while back after hearing this same idea from some other folks.  Would this be a brand new page then?  We'd have to figure out what mode to display and what columns to show in what order with what sorting. And would we put it in the person's "My Pages" area?  Or would you link to an existing page but pass in a quick filter to apply over the top of the saved query?

    Andy, I'm curious about your comment that this would remove the need for some triggers you have.  Can you explain that a bit more?

    Don, 

    I don't see why this has to be a new page or even saved to a page.  Trying to do this with a new page is kinda complicating the solution.  I would say include the project and page name maybe like this:

    https://www.-----.com/detail/Project/<Project_id>/Page/<Page_Name>/Filter/'sg_loaction','is','LA'

    In the instance of a dashboard you may need to provide the page name as well as the tab.  Maybe somehting like this:

    https://www.-----.com/detail/Project/<Project_id>/Page/<Page_Name>/Tab/<tab>/Filter/'sg_loaction','is','LA'

    Using the quick filter I think is a good start but will ultimately be to remedial.  I am talking about going to a specified page and including some hardcore filters.  For example we now have a report that grabs data from shotgun and filters it so we can find gaps in schedules.  This requires us to do a bit of a complicated data filter to find that gap.  I don't believe that quick filter would do the trick.  Although I suspect it would be easier to code and might be a great starting point.  Also the page already has existing filters it should simply add the new one on top if possible.  Otherwise we can always just include the expected filters in the mash-up. 

     

    The one thing that I think is important is that the mash-up is simply a quick link to an existing page with a temporary filter.  Once the page is displayed then the user can decide if they want to save the filter or not.  A lot of the time we use pages with temporary filters just to review the data, but don't have the intentions of actually saving the page with that filter.  This would be no different.

    OK understood.  I talked to Matt about this feature, and we're going to look at it when we dig into how our pages work in 1.9.

    A feature I've seen on other web based apps which has been handy is that the state of the page is always completely represented in the URL.  Things like sorts, filters, etc.  That way whatever you are looking at can be emailed to somebody or even programmatically generated (or used for these kind of reports).  As an aside.
