I guess it all depends on the number of ways you can share a custom view. I
stand by my statement that you aren't sharing the view. You're sharing the
URL that opens the view.

Then there might be other things you would share by sending its URL. So
"share a URL to a custom view" would also work.

Does the target audience get URL? And what does the interface say? Do we
need to say "send a link to a custom view"?
