Please forgive me this has been answered. How do I save the shared chart link? I know how to import it my TOS. Where does it go once I log off TOS? Will I have to import it every morning in order to have access to it?
Help please!
Thanks in advance

The easiest way to save a setup:
1. click on the box at the top right-side of your chart
2. click on Save Grid As
3. name it whatever you want

To retrieve the setup: click on the box and click on the name that you saved it under.

Great answer - it can also be saved by clicking on the beaker to the left of the chart time frame and wheel, go to dropdown and click on "Save as set" and then name the setup. Also when you have your setup in place go to the setup wheel (the one where you open shared items)...click on save workspace as...and then give it a name. You can then access it there as well as the upper right dropdown box.
 
Everything You Wanted To Know About Saving Your ToS Setup

Saving a group of indicators in a set:
1. click on the beaker at the top of chart
2. click on save study set
3. name whatever you want
use this method if you frequently use a group of indicators together across timeframes and with various instruments
CONS: this method does not save chart settings, aggregations, or any other parts of the chart settings.
ONLY USE to group indicators together

I recently imported this chart into my TOS.

https://usethinkscript.com/threads/...nd-indicators-for-thinkorswim.550/post-114980

I love the setup and I want to make a few modifications to it. I have noticed that I can't save this chart as a workspace, and I believe that is because I have to save it as a "study set."

When I save as a study set, I lose the volume indicator overlay in the upper chart. How do I preserve that feature?

Also, what is the best way for me save this chart that maintains the great look and functionality of the original link?

Thanks!

The link that I open -- pops up a flexible grid.

I don't see the same options for saving the grid. saving the workspace, etc, with the little box in the top right corner

It is there.
It looks a little different:
