Public Filters

Just switched from another Bug tracker software which allowed me to designate certain filters as public (available to all users). Is there a way to do this in FogBugz?

Hi, just wanted to vote for this feature. Having a common set of filters can be used for a couple of circumstances:

1) Reference in group emails. "As you can see at <filter-url-here>, there are 12 people who haven't yet entered time estimates for the upcoming v2.1 release."

2) If everyone in the company knows that fixing bugs for v2.1 is the top priority, then why make everyone in the company create an identical filter? The one poor guy who forgets to turn off his "priority >= 2" condition gets burned.

It wouldn't even have to be a "public filter" or "global filter" -- just having readonly access to others' filters or being able to copy from others (without writing a database manipulation script) would be huge.
