What is the best practice for "My Projects" search/filter settings?
The following property will default the My Projects screen display to the ‘Search’ tab vs the populated ‘List’ tab. This prevents the defaulted List tab taking several seconds to load, if there is a large quantity of projects in the list. Then a user can search for a limited number of projects/ tasks and display them without performance issues by clicking the List tab.
Additionally, you can control the amount of project/task results that display once the user clicks the List tab via the property "Limit Results on My Projects List Tab".
This property, combined with a reasonable number, should result in quick performance.
