add optional UX for query string
Add a ? option to the query language line which would bring up a UI to build the query line. At the very least, have it bring up context based help that describes the options and features of the query line.
This UI would build the query line like the following: Type:Update (Classification:"Security Updates" OR Classification:"Critical Updates") AND UpdateState=Needed AND Optional=false AND Approved!=false Computer="server.domain.com"
Basically I want to filter the output to some of the fields rather than all of the properties.

for example, how how can I graph a counter or do a histogram of something, etc.. I do see that you can put a pipe and then it suggests a few options for filtering. There needs to be more to it.
Finding the syntax is too convoluted. I found it via adding a pipe and the "where" hint came up with a link to the syntax doc. The syntax doc is pretty new and very useful, but it would be nice to have that document have a table of contents.
