Report Builder Filtering by entire tables & multiple 'defaults'

I recently created 'template' projects in a project management app I have built.  However, I did not want them to show up as projects in all the reports so I filtered the reports to not show projects with 'template' in the name (similar to the 'general message' filter which was originally built into the ABC Project Management App).  However, I had to go through and do this on ALL my reports separately (about 100).

My suggestion would be to allow a 'filtering' criteria (and maybe for 'sorting/grouping' and 'columns to display' as well) to be applied or added to all reports in a table (or maybe a step to select which reports to apply/add them to).


On another, somewhat related topic.  I often find having only one 'default columns' setting in the report builder limiting (not to mention not having any customizable 'default' for 'filtering' nor 'sorting/grouping').

My suggestion would be to allow administrators to create several additional 'column to display' options (currently, if I don't want exactly the 'default columns' then I have to set up a whole 'custom columns' set for every report separately).  This same idea could also be applied to 'filtering' and 'sorting/grouping' in the report builder.


By the way, GREAT JOB with the new 'list-user' field and the "Reorder fields more easily' improvement.  You just made my life A LOT EASIER!  Can't wait 'till the 22nd.
