Search on file name only

Users would like to be able to search by the file name only.

Suggestion: If we enter information into the search bar, you have the ability to filter the results by Location (binary choice: Any or Current location), Any type (file format, multiple options), Uploaded any time (multiple choices, coming from Date Modified field?) and Updated by (Anyone, me, person's name, coming from Updated by field).

I note that you have an existing filter with a binary choice for Location. Could you also have a filter called "Look for text in..." with two choices only (Anywhere or File Name, coming from File Name field)?

This would be very useful to us. It would also be a logical step in your search design, as it already weights file name results to bring those quickly to the top. Our ask is to be able to search ONLY file names (or, if this is a better way of saying it, to filter by file names).

Thanks for the feedback, @CenturyGroup.  We've considered adding specific fields to the custom metadata search so that users can choose where they'd like to search.
