I suggest you ...

Provide a mechanism to save a session to collaborate with other people

Implement the Session-style capability present in the UCSC genome browser...
If storage is of concern (this could be avoided by allowing the user to login with online storage system credentials and saving the session there) - related to my other feedback suggestion )https://chromozoom.uservoice.com/forums/158554-general/suggestions/3891926-provide-dropbox-and-other-online-drive-storage-sys)

    I’m trying to think about the best way to do this. Is there any way that it can already be done using the “Link to this view:” link, assuming all your files being loaded from URLs and not your computer? Our main issue with saving the tracks themselves is that we are concerned we will rapidly run out of space without per-user quotas, which will require a lot of support overhead.

        Yes... you can do it now by putting the files you want to display in the public area of your Dropbox account... however that is the problem of not implementing the authentication mechanism... if you want to keep those files private to you and the people you are collaborating with, this is not a feasible solution. Thanks for looking at this thou.
