Option to remain in Watchtower list

When working in "lists" available through the Watchtower option I find it unhelpful that I am thrown out of the list upon deleting an entry. Typically I would like to stay in the list to review other items for revisions/deletions.

    Hey there @johanus, thanks so much for writing in! I can definitely see how getting pushed out of Watchtower when editing/moving/deleting items makes cleaning up these lists cumbersome - I've filed this feedback along for the Dev team to look into, to see if we can make this process easier. Feel free to reach out with any further thoughts or feedback! :smile:

    Hi @Dayton_ag , I too find it really frustrating to get out of the list after each edit. Rather than create a new post for the same issue, I figured I'd just reply here. I would like the Dev team to know that I'm frustrated with this too.

    In a semi-related note, when trying to find a workaround for this, I discovered that I'm unable to export selected items in the new version. I'm not sure whether or not this is a known issue, but I didn't see anything in the message boards. So I created a separate post for that here.

    @mgargan1 Thanks so much for sharing this feedback - I've added your voice to the list.

    With regard to your second question, I'll follow up with you in the other thread. :smile:

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open watchtower and select one of the sets of items (weak passwords, unsecured websites, or inactve 2fa)
    2. select an item in the list
    3. Select More options > Archive item

    Expected result: After archiving, view stays on the list of items I was viewing
    Actual result: After archiving, view changes back to "All Items"

    I've confirmed that archiving an item from either a search result listing or the Favorites list stays on those lists as expected. So far, it only seems to navigate away from Watchtower lists.

    Ah, looks like this is likely a duplicate of https://1password.community/discussion/121906/option-to-remain-in-watchtower-list. That didn't show up in my initial search.

    Just ran into this myself, and ended up inadvertently filing a duplicate issue: https://1password.community/discussion/122227/watchtower-view-changes-to-all-items-after-archive#latest
