RDi RSE - save IFS filters like libraries/objects/members

When editing source in the IFS, it's really inconvenient to have to browse through the entire IFS tree to find the source you want to edit. It would be much better to have saved filters to quickly go to where you want instead.

Use Case:

After starting up RDi, in remote systems explorer expand the "IFS Files" and have an option to create shortcuts to folders you frequently use.

Once created the shortcut to your source IFS folder would be listed right there instead of having to browse through the existing options.

    Thank you for submitting the RFE. We have evaluated this request and determined that it cannot be implemented at this time because the functionality has already been provided. See the comment below for details.

    You could do this by right clicking IFS Files and then selecting New -> Filter..., but we understand that it will be easier and more discoverable to have an option under IFS Files.

    A preliminary evaluation of this request indicates that it is consistent with our business strategy. Further evaluation of this RFE is underway.
