Sharing a Run URL that Begins at a Custom
You may have a reason for starting some new users further along

For example, let's say you have a training program that teaches basic and advanced skills in hobby-horsing, the dramatic trending sport where (mostly) young girls leap over hurdles and gallop around tight corners, all while skillfully controlling a wooden stick attached to a stuffed horse head. You know that some of your users will be of a more advanced skill level, and therefore will need to skip the kiddy stuff.
After the beginner lessons in jumps, dressage, and keeping your
hobby-horse well-groomed, you've added a
just before the extreme stuff begins. To provide professional
users a link that will automatically start them there, you'd
simply add the following to the end of your URL:
Users clicking that link will start at
instead of the beginning.
As another example, let's say there's a menu at the beginning of
your program, and you'd like returning users (those who have
already started the program at least once) to begin at
instead of wherever they may have left off. You can easily share
a link to your program that's something like this:
/URL parameter trick only works for a
that's within your starting program; it
work for a program that's linked to within your program using
