How to use Zephyr unscheduled test cycles?

Finding myself wanting to use test cycles on unscheduled (version) as a logical grouping of tests, for example create a "Regression" test cycle and assign all tests want to run for regression for a JIRA project, that way whenever a new version is available to test, I just clone the "Regression" test cycle from Uncheduled version.

Now for the problem, soon as more tests are created, those tests are not added to the unscheduled "regression" tets cycle I described above. Seems to me more fitting to just have saved filters for "Regression" tests that have a "Regression" test cycle that will be out of date/missing tests soon as some are added.

Am I missing how unscheduled test cycles should be used?

Additionally, it would be great if the test cycles (for unscheduled) can sync to a jql query/filter so that they are never missing appropriate tests.

I agree. Once I've added tests to a Test Cycle using a filter, and then a new test is added that meets the criteria of that filter, it doesn't seem to get added into the Test Cycle. I either have to delete the cycle and re-create or manually add the test to the existing cycle. Will this be fixed soon?
