I'm with you on this feeling. The unfortunate answer at the moment is "you can't" though.
Check out the following thread: Can the SAVED SEARCH App be used as a widget anywhere within Jive?
and the following idea (which I've voted up myself): Ability to use Jive Apps on Space/Group/Project pages
The saved search app is just like any other app in that the user interacts with it via the dashboard. We are exploring ways to have deeper integrations that are more dynamic in nature, but for now, saved searches are an app and behave as such.
This is an old thread, but I believe the deeper integrations he's referring to are purposeful places and tiles.
Also in agreement regarding the information. I have not yet found it, and I suspect that the desire is for the apps, and apps market itself to hold this kind of information. Really feels like a bit of "teething"
Thanks for the replies! I hadn't seen that discussion. Disappointing, but I guess the tiles are coming soon. I also really hope that at some point a lot more information is provided on the apps, whether by Jive or by the third-party creators.
