Nope, this is in case you want to use one search as a basis for making another saved search. If you want to replace a search, you are doing it correctly. Make the new one, and then forget the old one.
Yes, I do use saved searches as the basis for new searches . . by saving the search with a different name.
Could I request that to update a search, we can just use the same name and have the search get overwritten?
I use saved searches constantly and often find I need to adjust the way a search operates and I want to "lose" the old search with the same name.
If anyone else has this need, click "Post Reply" at end of the page and let Jake know there are more users who could use this improvement than just Claudio and me.
I'd love to at least have the option to do this. Frequently when I click on "Modify Search", it's because I realize, "Oh, this search is deficient because I forgot to include criterion 'X'..."
Maybe there could be a third option, in addition to "Forget" and "Modify"? Maybe instead of "Modify", we could have "Edit" (saves under the current name) and "Fork" (start a new search with the same characteristics), or some other more appropriate names?
