A lot of us have asked for more organizational tools that we control, not controlled for us.

I would also like to be able to mark something as having potential rather than just putting it back to unread. They aren't ready to be considered stars and they aren't ones I want to discard. Nor are the unread. They are the ones I will probably prioritize to actively work on with my tree but they are lost under either the unread or read but not starred matches, so I would like to group them for when I can work on them. Also, I personally just work better going through one line at a time rather than constantly jumping back and forth each time a new match comes in.

Also, I would like to sort them by which line I think there may be a match. At a glance I can usually determine where I think my best chance for a match may be. I can tell by either locations or clusters of the surnames I frequently see with that line. However, finding the -exact- match or possibly building my tree to it may take some time.
