the ability to set a default start page is a great option, but it's incomplete as far as I can tell. it allows me to select an item one step down in the hierarchy, but no further. this means I still have to click through to get to where I need to be. this isn't a huge deal the first time each morning, but it's really irritating when you get into a task and then you're left without the breadcrumbs to get back.
even if just the built-in items were available (such as 'due-date > today' or 'status > active') it would be a big help.
