Allow a drill-down GoTo from one SmartView favorite to a separate SmartView window without closing the original favorite

Mike Parker asked 4 years ago
We would like the ability to drill down from one SmartView favorite to a separate SmartView window without closing the original favorite. We are aware that to can create a drill-down from one Smartlist favorite to another, but this closes the original favorite and runs the new favorite in the same window. This wipes out your original results. We would like the original (primary favorite) window to remain open and have the drill down pass the parameter to the second window to execute the drill-down query. Clicking the GoTo on another record in the primary window would then re-populate the secondary window using the new parameter. SmartView allows for multiple windows to be open at the same time so this seems like it should be possible to do. This would allow the user to quickly query additional details from their primary query without losing the info when drilling down to the secondary query. We are aware that you can create an Excel report with a drill-down, but the ability to do this with SmartView would be much easier.

This Feature Request is under consideration and will be looked at further for possible implementation in a future SmartView release.  There is currently no timeframe assigned.
