It could be something similar as the pernanent link for tasks that i am actually using on lists with great success.
I just need to add the ability to create permanent links for saved searches.
I think that is easy to implement, because you have saved search functionality created. I just need the link.
Example of application for Project management:
You could implement a template for controlling your Projects easily with lists and saved search links.
1)Each line of your list will be a step of your workflow.
2)Create all the tasks of your workflow.
3)Group your tasks on workflow steps.
4)Create saved searches for finding those groups.
5)Dedicate one cell for adding step saved searched link.
6)Dedicate one cell for "checkboxing" your workflow steps.
I hope that you like it and you consider the option of having saved search links in the future.
