Support saved searches/dynamic lists
We definitely going to implement this, but there are no exact dates.
Nigel Hughes commented
Is there a way to have a link to filtered subtasks within a list? I was hoping something like https://checkvist.com/checklists/123456/tasks/49514585?filter=due:today or https://checkvist.com/checklists/734006#task_49514585?filter=due:today would show all the items under task 49514585 that were due today (as the hyperlink https://checkvist.com/checklists/123456#task_49514585 displays just the items of this subtask). The workaround url only seems to be able to search all the items of a list rather than display just those items under the subtask relevant to the filter.
Hello Monica! Thanks for your suggestion, I understand your pain. Could you please vote/watch the issue https://checkvist.uservoice.com/forums/2121-checkvist-web/suggestions/2017839-allow-search-filter-by-tag-to-use-or-and-not - it is related to the "NOT" operator for the search function.
I'm afraid this feature is a complex one and we haven't started working on it yet. But I really hope we will implement it.
Any update on this?
https://checkvist.com/checklists?filter=tag:TAG_NAME has been very helpful but is there a way to do a global search for a word or phrase that is NOT tagged with a particular tag?
what is the status of this - seems pretty old feature reuqest :)
Would be nice if it was possible to save filters and invoke them whenever required. It saves time, makes you more efficient and you don't have to remember the syntax to use every time.
This would be HUGE!!
Big yes vote from me.

Actually a float panel(bookmarks) with shortcut will be better.
I'd love a set of buttons or links at the top of the page that users could customize for their favorite searches. So for instance I could have one link/button for tasks due today and high priority.

Would love this, as well as shortcuts to be able to quickly navigate go to the various saved searches.
Alan B commented
+1 for this :)
Roman Spiridonov commented
Simple search is easy and does not need to be saved.
I would think that this feature needs to be implemented after support for combined filters (OR, AND, etc.)
Thanks a lot for the suggestion - it really makes sense. We'll definitely consider the possibility to create iCalendar links for saved searches, when we'll start working on this feature.
Bryan Roach commented
Saved searches would be useful for Calendar integration as well, if every saved search could have an associated iCalendar link.
I would love to do something like this:
1. Do a complex search for tasks: "date:any AND (list:'List A' OR list:'List B') AND (tag:Event OR tag:holiday OR tag:Appointment)
2. Save the search and give it a name: "My Events"
3. Copy the saved search's iCalendar link and paste it into any Calendar app.
Regarding saved filters - there is a hidden feature which allows to do this.
You can create custom URLs which include a filter, for instance:
Obviously, this is not a solution, but a workaround, because this information is fixed in the URL and is not updated.

Quick addition to my comment, it would obviously be nice if the view options were added to the URL fragment also.
David Rees commented
What I would really like is saved filters. As Joseph pointed out we have a workaround for searches now because you can save the URL, but that doesn't work for filters. You could support it pretty easily though by updating the URL fragment each time a filter is run or cleared. Many other sites do this (since the URL fragment can be updated dynamically without triggering a page load). For example, if I search for "tag: tag2" and hit enter the URL would change to "https://checkvist.com/checklists/29377#?f=ag%3Atag2".
Jacob, thanks for the suggestion :)
