I can think of a few good reasons to want to find jobs by status explicitly.
Also, I think anyone who is going to put in more statuses beyond what is stock will need it.
As an example (might not be the best example for wide applicability):
I created a closed status called BACKLOG. I like to put in code things as I discover them, but putting things on HOLD does not clean up off of the
mine filter and some others. To me, HOLD functionality seems more suitable to pausing a job to work on something else or something be blocked, and that makes sense you’d want those to be visible all the time.
Unfortunately, bc BACKLOG is a closed state (in order to get it to hide itself), there’s no easy way to search for these with /search, and there’s no /filter either (perhaps this isn’t the best example for /filter but mine is really only meant to just an example for a closed state custom status).
Thank you for your consideration either way!
