Add 'Copy Internal Link to Notebook' on the same basis we can link to individual notes

My pitch here is that since we can easily copy note links inside the app,  it should also be possible to copy notebook links.  Embedding that link in a note or external document should produce a view of all the notes in a specific notebook in exactly the same way that clicking the notebook name from the Notebook view does.

I've seen the occasional request for a link to a notebook before.  My use case is now project-related.  I use software external to Evernote to prompt me when I need to check progress on my latest project - WD3* for example - and while I've experimented with using a 'control panel' for my project so I can link to a ToC note listing all my WD3 notes,  maintaining the ToC note is an extra task**.  If I could just link to a notebook containing all my WD3 notes,  then Evernote's existing lists would do the job.

I've played with various work-arounds,  and while command-line access is possible in Legacy,  and web access is available by simply copying the URL of a displayed notebook list,  grabbing the link with a native command would be easier,  quicker and more efficient.

Use or otherwise of the link is inherently optional - if the feature exists users will be able to access it if they wish.

** currently run by Filterize,  but that's another external third party app...

Vote top left please,  if you agree....

I understand note links; they use the note id  and retrieve the note element

We could get a notebook link; using the notebook id (and retrieve the notebook element)
however I think you're actually looking for a search link - all notes assigned with the notebook

I could accept a search - provided it would be accessible from a link somehow.  I'm thinking Google Calendar note to say "check WD3 progress" with a link to take me to the current situation.  I can actually do that with a web address in a browser which looks pretty much the same as the address of a note,  so I assume an ID is allocated.
