The filtered view is now a saved card on your Dashboard. Select the card from the left navigation again and save with a different filter for quick access. 

Create as many unique cards as you like, and add a new card any time.

After creating a new card or making modifications, be sure to click the blue Save Changes button in the bottom-right corner of the card.
