The filter function in Excel brings great power to sorting and finding the right information, in our case tasks.

By adding filters to fields sorting and finding the right tasks given a set of conditions is a piece of pie.

Although the gif isn't probably the best illustration it shows a simple example.

Filters will give us different possibilities of finding, instead of searching for tasks. If the possibility existed to also save different filter settings this would be magic.
