Dictation list filters are saved

Filters set up by the user in the dictation list are now saved even when the user signs out and in again. This saves a lot of time on the daily work, enabling users to customize their dictation list and have it immediately ready as needed.

Filters are also saved based on the view, so if the user sets different filters for the archive than those are saved independently, the same is true for office managers when using the all dictations view.
