Suggestion from Helge.
Assuming a list of shared menus existing on a shared drive, in a rather large organization. Each shared menu external ini file would be saved in a sub-folder. All users would have read access to all these folders. Each shared menu would be managed by one or more users having write access to this external setting's sub-folder.
In QAP, show a directory of registered shared menus and allow user to "subscribe to" (add) the shared menus of his choice. Subscribing could be done from a sub-menu within QAP menu, or from a dialog box opened by a button in the Settings window. Check boxes or check menu would allow to select one or more menus.
Offer a way for sysadmin to automatically add a shared menu at next (or first) use of QAP. Let user confirm the addition and position of this shared menu. User could change the name or position of this menu, as with any favorite.

See this post form Helge.
Store the destination (optional) so next time the dialog is opened the destination name is filled.
Add placeholder for %DATETIME% (format YYYYMMDDHHMMSS).
[Wishlist] Add to Alternative menu an option to move the open/navigate to the folder containing the clicked document (or application)
As seen in Folder Menu (if I remember well). It makes sense to have recent and current folders to be presented in the same list since it answers the same need to find something accessed recently.
In Folders Popup, the Recent Folders menu present the x most recent folders found in the Windows virtual folder “Recent items” (C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Recent Windows). See this discussion for more info.
In QAP, this menu could also memorize the most recent folders accessed using QAP, regardless of Window's list. Also, I saw in Folder Menu (if I remember well) that this list also included Current Folders (folders actualy open in Windows Explorer). See this item.
