I have yet to see this in the Geocortex tools and if there is I have missed it (I still very new to the system). One thing we require and have built into our existing mapping interface is a URL tool. What this does is provides a user the ability to obtain a URL for the current view so they can come back to that view later. The URL through use of a querystring will be generated indicating the current map service, layers in view, the extents of the view and any selected features. When the browser is given this URL, the map application will of course see the querystring and load the map appropriately.
We have found this to be of great use for areas in the city such as our Leisure Services department to provide users with links to the location of sporting fields, leisure centers, etc….
Do you have anything like that or have plans for it?
