Smart collection/saved search
Like "Smart playlists" in iTunes. You create conditions (topic, title/description/text contains string, multiple tags, type, date..etc...) and all bookmarks automatically puts to specified collection.
Think of it as "saved search"

This is such a great feature that naturally follows from tagging. It makes sorting effortless. I'm looking forward to this feature.

That would be a very neat feature!
If I can make a suggestion, it would be amazing if a "smart collection" (aka. "saved search query") could also be nested under a parent collection.
In terms of UI design for the view to list the content of a collection, I guess "smart collections" could be displayed the same way as how nested collection are displayed.
The only difference would be that there should be an edit button in addition to the rename button. This button should open the query editing view, which is basically a redirection to the search result page with the search bar pre-filled with the saved search + a save button, kind of like how you can create/edit a filter in Gmail from the search bar.
This would be easy to implement as you would just have to consider "search queries" as a child of the Collection object. It would therefore inherit all abilities of the parent Collection object like being part of a group or nested in a parent collection.

The fact that the search parameters are in the url means you can achieve this already by bookmarking the search itself
Url looks like this after searching:
If you bookmark/raindrop that, you have a dynamic saved search :)
Thank you for Raindrop
. I just found it. It is so good!

I would love to see this feature, smart collection, coming. Especially also the possibility to build public, but not limited to, smart collections based on combined tags (e. g. #recommended + #a11y + #articles), but also to avoid to have to decide in which collection I have to save an object, because I can’t put one object in two or more different collections. If it becomes a saved search I would love to get the option to save that as a public saved search.

I’ll jump into the fray as well. I use Raindrop as my read-later app for both work and personal use. I have a corresponding collection for each. For links I add to both collections, I use the tag #read-later. It would be great if I could create a smart collection containing all links within the collection “Personal” with the tag “read-later”.
Currently I have to go into my “Personal” collection, click into the search bar, and then either click tags and select “read-later” or start typing “read-later”.
I have to do this every day. It would be great and a time-saver if in the sidebar, there was a “Smart Collections” section that would house my persistent search for read-later links.

Would definitely love to see this feature, given that it is available in competitive tools like Anybox. Came to make this feature request and saw it already here.

Another upvote for this feature. I just went to figure out how to save a common search I perform and saw it's not available... yet. :)

This would be great for creating a collection based on tags - for example:
I have two tags "#gift-idea" and "#name-of-person". If I could create a smart collection and use the share feature to share this smart collection with someone else, that person could easily see which potential gifts I have saved for this person.
Another use case would be collections depending on specific websites like youtube, twitter etc. Right now I am tagging these by hand!

I thought there was already this feature. I hope it has been included in the development plan and next release... I'd love it!

Save a search as a custom filters
Matthew P Munger
It would be really nice to have the ability to save searches as a sort of dynamic collection or custom filter. This is how filters already work. When you click on the Videos filter, it's actually performing a type:video search on all bookmarks.
