Yes, exactly. I didn't include my text in the original post, so here it
is. It's a heading, "Share a Custom View via URL". The way the user
shares a custom view (in a web browser dashboard) is to set everything
up and then copy the resultant URL, which encodes all sorts of info
about what to show in the custom view. So the user is sharing by view
"by way of" sharing the resultant URL.
