Using static text customization, it is possible to upload your own HTML page into specific areas of WebCenter. This provides you with a lot of possibilities to create a nice layout, for example for the Welcome page. In this case, you may also want to link to existing WebCenter saved searches. This article describes how to get the correct URL to link to your saved search.
It is possible to add a link in your HTML that points to a WebCenter saved search. For example you could create a layout with several large buttons, each of them linking to a frequently used saved search. The URL you see when you execute your saved search however will not work properly in your static text customization, you will need to use a slightly different URL.
Follow the steps to find the correct URL to use in your static text customization:

Click Create New My Work Section.
Set Type to Saved Search.
Now select your saved search from the Saved Search list.

Optionally add &showGrid=1 to the end of your URL to automatically show the search in Grid view.

<img src="../images/logo_icon.png" alt="Click here to see all logos"/>
