How it works now
It is a very manual process to add items to search queries. You have to do it one at a time, scrolling through drop-down menus for each one.
Add a string field that we can copy from and paste to. Adding items from the drop-down menus would add text to the string field. Copying that text to a new query would add the items to the list.Obviously you would need data validation for this.
It's a lot easier to update and manipulate a text string than it is to hunt and peck for items in a drop-down menu. It would also give us the ability to share search queries and dashboards without being an Admin, simply by copying the query "code" and sending that via email.
