PINNED Filter UI enables having OR between filters (not just AND)
Users want to filter cases for client1 OR client2. They can't without creating a custom filter with javascript -- which they don't like at all
PINNED SQL statements in Dashboard Widgets
I think using SQL statements in widgets would be great to leverage the entire potential of the data uploaded to IBM Process Mining. Lots of important and helpful information cannot be displayed today as it's only SQL-like. I don't think that using...

Alphabetization in ONLY SOME of the dropdown lists, which can have a huge list of variables
