I think I saw some support for bookmarking go into Fusion 2.0. There are some developers from DM Solutions on this list that may be able to provide more details...

Hi All,
I was wondering, has anyone seen a bookmarking tool (either FUSION or Basic
Web Layout)?  

I think there are different ways of doing this.  
1. I saw one solution that grabbed the URL of the web layout (including
sessionid) but this expires...

2. I thought I could capture the map name, current scale, and the current
layer visibility in the session and store to a database..then apply these
parameters after the user logs in.

3. I thought I saw a FUSION demo that "save map" would store the map
permanently in the repository and just share it to everyone, but does anyone
know if this stored the current status (scale and layer visibility

The issue I have with all these approaches is that this requires that the
web layout is customized to accommodate the passing of these parameters...
it would be great if there were URL parameters (GET or POST) that we can
pass the scale and layer status to the whole Web Layout (FUSION or BASIC)...

any feedback on how anyone worked through this issue would be great.
