Enhance Search Abilities for InFlight Archive

It is EXTREMELY difficult to find documents in InFlight Archive because there are such limited search options. When looking for data, I most often search by envelope name or map name. Neither of those options are available. We also have many partners that use different ISA and GS IDs but we also can't search by GS ID which then leads to a situation where we have to try and search through all data returned by ISA lookup to see if we can locate a document with the correct GS ID. Archive should contain the exact same search flexibility as the current data since it is even less likely that we will have the information available to us needed to find a document in Archive given the limited search criteria available today.

What is your industry? Travel & Transportation
How will this idea be used?

I would be able to identify data that was processed by a particular envelope or map name rather than trying to narrow it down by ISA IDs and Transaction Type alone. As mentioned we have many partners who use different GS and ISA IDs which the current search criteria do not take into account.
