Currently, the folders and view settings made during a session carry over to all folders. I believe that the view setting is much more useful to be specific to a folder. I'm spending a lot of time changing these filters when I click between folders.
For example when looking at task lists, I only want to see active tasks, and all dependants.
Then when I click on a folder with the project plan with multiple task levels, I want to see all tasks so I can drill down into the sub-tasks.
When I click on a folder for resource management, I usually want to filter to only the people I have in my team.
This request is to allow folders to have saved 'Views'. Then one of those views can be saved as the default. Or you could select another saved view.
