Filter names should show at top of screen as title rather than the query string

On the web app, when I click on a filter that I have created can you please change the title at the top of the list of tasks to be my filter name, rather than the query string that my filter uses?

For example, I have a filter named "Waiting".
The query string for this filter is "@wait4Debi | @wait4Task | @wait4Jason | @wait4Tom | @wait4Ed | @wait4Chris | @wait4Forget | @wait4John | @wait4Date | @wait4Mark | @wait4Sue".
When I click on the filter the header at the top of the screen shows "@wait4Debi | @wait4Task | @wait4Jason | @wait4Tom | @wait4Ed | @wait4Chris | @wait4Forget | @wait4John | @wait4Date | @wait4Mark | @wait4Sue" in big font, which is ugly and confusing. The search box right above it also contains the same string, so it is redundant to have it twice.

A second example is I have a filter named "Weekend actions".
The query string is "(@home & p1 & no date) | (5 days @home) | (overdue @home)".
The header shows "@home & Priority 1 & Tasks with no due date | 5 days & @home | Overdue & @home".

Thanks! (+1)

I have kind of the same problem. On my iPhone and iPad I do see the name of the query as a bold heading. But on my PC and on web interface, a "smart label" is shown as heading for simpler queries. For more advanced queries, the heading is blank, but the query is still shown on top.

I.e. for the query "p1" the heading is set to "Priority 1" on PC and web, but on my iPad and iPhone the name is shown.

Mats,

There are some differences on the platforms, we hope we can improve the difference, and make them the same as time goes on.

Brendon.

Ok. I just wanted this to get attention, since you told Nick (above) to add this feature to the votebox. It is an already existing feature, just not implemented on all platforms.

Mats,

This should be fixed, and same on all platforms.
