Custom Columns in Filter so everybody sees the same?


I have created a new filter, added and reorded some columns and shared this filter. If another user uses this filter he doesn't see the columns I have added and he has to add the columns to this filter himself manually. This is a cumbersome task if you share a filter for many users.

Is it possible to share the filter the way I see it? So everybody sees the columns I see ?

I also cannot get this to work with the latest version of
