The url for the lists page will now look something like this:

https://example.com/contacts?query=eyJmaWVsZHMiOlt7ImxvY2F0aW9uX2dyaWQiOlsiMTAwMDg5NTg5Il19XSwic29ydCI6Im5hbWUiLCJvZmZzZXQiOjB9&labels=W3siaWQiOiIxMDAwODk1ODkiLCJuYW1lIjoiTG9jYXRpb25zOiBGcmFuY2UiLCJmaWVsZCI6ImxvY2F0aW9uX2dyaWQiLCJ0eXBlIjoibG9jYXRpb25fZ3JpZCJ9XQ%3D%3D

The query above is for "All contacts in the Location: France". If you copy everything starting with ?queue and add it to your domain, you also will have the "Locations: France" filter. This might not look pretty but comes with some useful features.

  • More flexibility saving and bookmarking filters
  • Easier to share the filter with someone else on your team. For them to view or to save
  • More options to open up the list page form different parts of Disciple.Tools like the metrics page.
