How to save advanced UI filtering user preferences

The great flexibility of SFDataGrid is the Advanced filter UI that provides multiple filter options to filter the data easily directly on UI.
The problem is that on every application start the user need to set again the personalized UI filter if he want the same options setted before exit from the application.
I'd like to know if is there the possibility to save the preferences of UI filtering user filter options on application exit and reload them on the next application start.

Hi Gianni,  
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.  
You can achieve your requirement by using Serialization and Deserialization concept. SfDataGrid allows you to save and load the grid settings using the SfDataGrid.Serialize and SfDataGrid.Deserialize methods. We have prepared a sample as per your requirement and you can download the same from the below location, 
By default, SfDataGrid allows you to Serialize/Deserialize the Sorting, Grouping and Filtering operations. You can serialize the Filtering operation alone by disabling the other operations using SerializationOptions and DeserializationOptions like the below code example.

For serialize:

var serializationOptions = new SerializationOptions() 
                SerializeFiltering = true, 
                SerializeCaptionSummary = false, 
                SerializeColumns = false, 
                SerializeDetailsViewDefinition = false, 
                SerializeGrouping = false, 
                SerializeGroupSummaries = false, 
                SerializeSorting = false, 
                SerializeStackedHeaders = false, 
                SerializeTableSummaries = false, 
                SerializeUnBoundRows = false 

For Deserialize :

var deserializationOptions = new DeserializationOptions() 
                DeserializeFiltering = true, 
                DeserializeCaptionSummary = false, 
                DeserializeColumns = false, 
                DeserializeGrouping = false, 
                DeserializeDetailsViewDefinition = false, 
                DeserializeGroupSummaries = false, 
                DeserializeSorting = false, 
                DeserializeStackedHeaders = false, 
                DeserializeTableSummaries = false, 
                DeserializeUnBoundRows = false 

You can refer the below UG link to know more about Serialization and Deserialization in SfDataGrid,
