    Filtering jobs is annoying because I found no way to save the filters, so that I have to re-enter them by hand every time.

    Most site either allow you to explicitly save filters, or at least redirect you to an URL that, visiting it again, you'll get the same filter (i.e. parameters are in the GET).

    This feature would improve by much the usefulness of this site.
    Could it be implemented, please?

    Hey Lohoris2,

    Thanks again for the feedback! Currently your search filters are cached between sessions. Do you mean that you want to save different configurations?

    For example:
    • On day one
      • You begin searching for paid hourly work in California with skills c# and you save that as "Load Out 1 (LO1)"
      • You begin searching for paid work, remote ok, with skills c# and you save that as "Load Out 2 (LO2)"
    • A few days later you come back to the side and you can quickly switch between LO1 and LO2?

    Hi, saving in sessions isn't really stable, and it often doesn't work properly.

    What are you proposing would be a solution, yes, most sites do such a thing.

    I suggest your whole team take the time to study Upwork: it's a site with terrible job offers, but an excellent interface, by far the best I've seen in any job-announcement site.

    Upwork allows saving filters as well as having an RSS feeds for them, so i can add this to my RSS aggregator and look up stuff, without even logging in to Upwork
