Some clients would prefer that the My Tasks page not revert to the saved sort & filter settings upon logout / login (i.e. with each new session). The ability to save default settings is useful to create a common starting point for everyone, but the thought is that each user should be able to customize their own view and make those customizations stick so they see their own personal layout whenever they login. Of course other clients may prefer that artists always be presented with the studio-mandated sorting and filtering, to make sure they are seeing all their assignments, and seeing them in the correct priority order.
