Can a navbar item link to to a Macro?

I would like a NavBar Menu item to link to a Macro that I have created... Is this possible? What about linking a NavBar Item to a NON Saved Search... In other words, hard code the search in the NavBar Item?

You can put arbitrary links into the navigation using an <a href="<url>"> tag:

<nav>
    <collection label="Some links">
        <a href="http://mysplunkserver.local:8000/manager/test/admin/macros/foo?f_ns...">Edit Macro 1</a>
        <a href="http://mysplunkserver.local:8000/app/test/flashtimeline?q=search%20index=someindex">Run serach XYZ</a>
    </collection>
    <a href="http://otherserver.com/">External Link</a>
</nav>

Thanks.. This worked nicely for me... I wasn't aware that you could run any search by specifying /flashtimeline?q=search in the URL.. Nice.
