With Clientexec, you can create and use custom ticket filters for yourself, or your whole staff. To start, go to the ticket view and select Ticket Search.
In this example, we want to create a filter that will private so just I can view my tickets. So you'll want to select that it's assigned to you, and then make sure to create a filter that the status is NOT closed so it will include all other statuses.
You will now see this filter in the Support tab.
To use this as your main filter, see this article.
