Predefined folder views per folder

Predefined folder views per folder

Each folder should have an option to predefine a previously created table view to be preloaded once the folder is loaded, after that the user could change the view if wanted but at least he would have loaded the right view for that folder content right way, this is very annoying for all users, mainly when the network is overloaded and it takes some time to reload a page with the right view.

It could be a global setting for all users or a personal setting where each user can define his own default views per folder.

This functionality could be extended in the future to the saved searches too.

It should be at least a "Remember View" option when you are in a folder and select the right view for the content of that folder.

This is a major usability issue in my customer which has the majority of the users (of 1200+ seats) using the web interface the entire day.

The complaint I receive everyday as a System Administrator is that "It's a shame! Even Windows can do it!", I can understand the differences between both systems but the users don't.

PTC should look more into usability, it's good to have new modules available but I feel like the usability is being left aside...

Good thing this is still open for voting two years later!

Add an attribute to the folder object to define the desired configured view.  If the view is deleted, then just show All.
