Support saved searches/dynamic lists
Good one, will be implemented eventually.
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 :)

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.

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 :)
I would like saved search to work like *perspectives* in OmniFocus. To see uses of that, there are lots of posts on it just googling "perspectives omnifocus", for example:
Joseph, thanks for the suggestion. May I ask you, what kind of saved searches you're using this way?
In the meantime you can create a list of saved searches by using the URL of that specific search
Ben, thanks for the suggestion. It is actually how we think to implement this.

I'd love to access saved searches through the same menu (and shortcut) as my 'real' lists.
saved searches would add a tremendous layer of flexibility and "freestyle" capabilities
Jonathan Sheller commented
great suggestion, would be extremely useful.
Mark, thanks for the clarification. It really makes sense.
Would help me implement GTD in checkvist so I could have saved searches on multiple tags such as: #@computer, #-nextaction
IMHO, this feature is begging to be implemented given the way one is likely to think freestyle with Checkvist. :)
