    I would like to propose that a proper query language is implemented for creating filters. The current way of building filters is really cumbersome and not very powerful. It would be very useful to be able to write a query such as this and store it is a filter:


    (State is NOT "Resolved" AND State is NOT "Closed") AND (Assignee is "Otto" OR Assignee is "Paul") and Category in ("Helpdesk", "Backup", "Network")


    With a few basic building blocks, it becomes possible to create as complex a query as you need.


    (Jira does this extremely well...)

    What problem will this feature solve?:
