How do we find useful feature scripts?

@Jake_Rosenfeld ; posted a very helpful article about adding FS at the end of this discussion

Jake or others - I have seen this question on forum before but I do not remember a good answer.   I know FS is not intended long-term solutions to generally required functions.  However, for now there is a lot of good stuff which we could be using.  Knowing and organizing what is available is difficult.  Besides getting a recommendation on the forum what tips & tools do you have for discovering and organizing Custom Features (aka Feature Script).

    They say the cream rises to the top, so one way to find good feature scripts is to search the public section of Onshape and sort by the most links. The quality feature scripts docs are generally at the top of this list.

    Great tip!  That goes a long ways in finding FS.  It is a little easier when the docs are named with 'Feature Script'.   Amazing how many are written!  

    The search function seems to have a ways to go.  Am I missing or can you do the following?
    1) sort on the columns after filtering with a term in the search field (like 'feature')?
    2) filter for documents that have FS?
    3) I was trying to figure out how to group selected docs and realized Label is perfect.  Select a number of docs and add label like 'Cool Feature Script'.  Then can just filter by Label.  However, can we filter for more than one Label at a time?
