Requesting that all include criteria be saved as part of the Favorite item definition in Navigator for i

In Navigator for i, we specify include criteria (i.e. - filtering to include only two subsystems on the Active Jobs screen), and then save the resulting screen as a Favorite. After closing the screen and then going back in via the saved Favorite, the Active Jobs screen comes up but without the include criteria - all subsystems are shown.

Use Case:

System administrators are frequently concerned with only a subset of the list. This is true of subsystems, output queues, line descriptions, message queues, user profiles, etc. The need increases as the size of the system increases, and the need for viewing subsets (instead of the entire list) becomes greater.
