Favorites is a Magnolia app that allows you to bookmark locations in the system. Use favorites for often-used apps and actions so you can navigate to them faster. Favorites are user specific.
The advantage of storing favorites inside Magnolia is that they are automatically ported to all instances (dev, test, production). If you work on multiple computers and browsers, favorites are still available. Favorites enable system administrators to provision functionality to a large user base: an admin can create a set of pre-defined favorites that all users get out of the box.

A fragment identifies the location
#. In AdminCentral URLs, the fragment keeps track of an app's internal state. It identifies the name of the app, the subapp that is open, and optionally a path to the content that is operated on. In public URLs the fragment identifies an anchor.
See Location, location, location for examples of fragments.
Favorites are stored in the
