Len,

This a beta feature with multiple usability issues. That said, it should work; 
here's how:

Galaxy provides a URL when you export a history; take note of this URL as this 
is the one that you'll when importing the link. If Galaxy doesn't provide a 
link, update the history somehow (e.g. change its name slightly) and Galaxy 
will provide the URL again. 

Another catch: you'll need to make the history 'accessible via link' for the 
URL to work. You can do this via Options --> Share or Publish menu.

Good luck,
J.
