SPO Open List from Other List in Dialog with Filter

Working with SharePoint Online/365, I want to open a SharePoint list from another list on field click. I can get the list in a dialog with the following:

function openDialog(myProject) {  
   SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog(   
     {  
       url: "https://mysite.sharepoint.com/sites/develop_apps/Lists/ProjectCommunications/AllItems.aspx",
       width: 1000,
       title: "Project Communications"  
     }  
   );  
 }

Open in new window


This works great. But how can I open that list filtered? I've tried:

function openDialog(myProject) {  
   SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog(   
     {  
       url: "https://mysite.sharepoint.com/sites/develop_apps/Lists/ProjectCommunications/AllItems.aspx#FilterField1%3DProject-FilterValue1%3D" + myProject,
       width: 1000,
       title: "Project Communications"  
     }  
   );  
 }

Open in new window


but that gives me "no items to show"

What is the correct way to filter via URL, if possible?

I don't think this will help because it is from SharePoint on premise, but maybe.

I have never used the string as you have it:

AllItems.aspx#FilterField1%3DProject-FilterValue1%3D" + myProject,

which is not to say it is wrong, just something I have never seen.

In most of my situations, I am using a relational list and I go to one of the form pages such as display or edit, however it should work too with allitems. The string would be very simply such as this;

/display.aspx?ID=123

That would open the display form for the item with the ID from the string.

Hope that helps...
