Searching in Wrike

I would like to propose a few changes to the search function in Wrike:

1. When you search, the default location of the search should be the folder than you're in.  In the example below, I've already found the folder that the task should be in, folder "Math Status Report", but instead of bringing me to the math status report folder, it first shows me all tasks.  I think it would be better if the default was tasks in "Math Status Report". 

2. Once you've found the task you're looking for, if you click it, it brings you to the task, but it also keeps you in the search area, it doesn't bring you to the folder that the task is in.  When you click the task, I think that it should bring you to the task's folder instead of staying in the search area. 

3.  The search button should be in the folder area instead of in the left menu bar.   Then you can search directly in the folder/project/space that you want to.  It would be helpful if there was a search option here somewhere:

I wholeheartedly agree.  Especially with #1 and #2.  For #3, when I have the left sidebar closed I have to re-open it to see the search bar.  It would be quicker if it was included in the filter/sort area - perhaps to the left of the "all tasks" element of the screenshot Jill included. Or having the search bar in both places (left of "all tasks" and in the left sidebar) would be good too.
