Route linking

I find traveling with my pair very fun, I am always using multiple destinations, and the optimize route is amazing.

The part I find lacking is having to do the same clicking on both accounts.

Would it be a good idea to be able to link the route in chat as a single clickable? [drag and drop into window]

Before this makes it easier for macros or whatever (im behind the times, I just play now) EVE already promotes multiple account usage.

linking insists people can access it from anywhere.

this becomes an issue because autopilot isnt coded for A-B, its coded for "current position -> B", to allow routes to be linked between any two spots in EVE, they would have to overhaul the whole route-planner system to accomodate the need for being able to identify "A" as at least a temporary bookmark, and an active connection to bookmark "B".

maybe im just making it overcomplicated, but either way i cant the benefits would be worth the effort of recoding an entire mechanic of the game.

While the above poster brings up some good reasons why this may not work... I find the OPs idea pretty interesting.

Not only would it be useful, as he said, if you are flying more than one account.... but also for fleet 'roams' or 'patrols'.
Fleet leader can create a proposed route and hand it out to the fleet. This way fleet members are more informed, and scouts can then fly a few systems ahead while easily keeping track of where they are in relation to the fleet.
