Request for New filter options in Inflight for communication type and pod

In the search for document option. Could you add the communication type to the search ? Like AS2, SFTP, Van or FTP. It would also be VERY useful if you could add the option to select a POD like POD41 and only see those that go thru that POD. When you have problems either with a communication type or just everything thru a POD . We often have a hard time to identify all of the impacted partners. This would allow us to notify the business which partners are impacted so they could take other actions to not lose loads.
