It seems to me you have created Filter not Active Link, Try to add Active Link and make sure state is not disabled.
State Disabled was just when i took the screenshot
I am trying to do the same for SMART IT , so trying to mimic DISPLAY of ACTIVE LINK to FILTER for Smart IT , i do not even know whether it is possible or not. :/
Ok, you temporarily want to set these values or permanent. if permanent then filter is good to have it and check the Submit and Modify option. When user loads the data it will reflect the data which was set during saving the record.
On the fly you can not set the data in smart It until unless the new release of smart it 2.0 might have that option but never know until explore it.
Ok thanks , that answers my query . I am trying to do the same on the fly .
