Is it possible to forward to a doctype page with filter?

Hi Everyone,

We are creating custom apps and setting the Module Menu. For instance, one of the menu link would direct to the Item Master page:

Is it possible to specify certain filter criteria with such links?
For instance: we’d like to have item_group automatically set as “something” when user click on this button.
Can that be done from the file?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

No known methods?
