Search an article in editor pages

in "Unassigned", "Submissions in Review", "Submission in editing" and "Archives" pages (as editor) you can use an small search tool to find an article. Using this tool you can find articles searching by tile, by role or by date. In our case many editors want to search using the article id, it is possible?
Is there any reason why this option is not available? Can easily add?

Hi ntorres,

This isn't currently available as an option, and wouldn't necessarily be trivial to add. We'd be happy to consider it as a feature request if others are interested in the option. In the meantime, if you know the article's ID you can always go directly to it by clicking on any article in any queue, and changing the article's ID number in the URL manually.

Hi James,

I am also very interested in this feature. Many journal editors have asked me about this possibility. The identifiers for submissions that OJS provides are very useful for publishers who manage a large number of submissions.

It is increasingly common for publishers, in his management notes, just point the identifier to refer to an article. Then it would be very convenient to access the data of the editorial process of the article simply stating the identifier.

It would be a power feature!
