1. Say you have 2 pages in Airtable interface (page 1 and page2)

2. The actions a user needs to take are located in different 2 grids,  respectively located on page 1 and page 2

3. Currently we need to set the filter manually in Page 1 and again manually in Page 2.

Is there a way/workaround to retain the filter parameters set up in Page 1 when navigating to Page 2?

Apparently we cannot pass parameters to filters via URL parameters either 😕

Wouldn't it be easier to put the two tables/grids on the same interface?

We're trying to build a 'one action per page'-type thing. We've added a button at the bottom of each grid that sends the user to the next action on a different interface page.

This is to create a 'wizard-type experience' where the user is guided to perform a series of actions without being an expert. Does that make sense?

you might be able to do some back end trickery where you create a new column called page 2 filters, then on page 1, based on what the user does, set the page 2 filters.  Then on page 2 add the page 2 filters to your page.
