Description

Generally there 2 kinds of searches:

  1. Snapshot. When revisited the result is the same as of the moment of search.
  1. Smart. The query is stored and fired again each time the search is revisited. Thus the search result is always "up-to-date". Sometimes this is known as "Smart Folder" or "Smart Playlist".

Currently DM's standard search is a Snapshot search. The Smart kind should be supported as well.

(Note that DM already supports smart by-type searches: just select the type topic. The result list of all that type's instances is always up-to-date. This leverages DM's networked "natural index" and is generally applicable, e.g. select a workspace to get an up-to-date listing of all its members.)
