Search by Filename and Automatically Adding Caption by reading the Metadata in the photos.

I noticed there is a way to search by labels in Later but not filenames - any way to add that in?  When I export I have lightroom use the keywords I create to name the files - then on my computer I can sort the images that way makes it easier instead of adding labels in browser.  

It would be awesome if Later could read the Keyword metadata in the files and use that to automatically generate the captions for use in IG.

    Search by filename is already in Table View on Media Library!

    Where is it in the Table View - I can't seem to find how to do this?

    This does not exist, you can sort only on the table view, not search.

    Upvoted. I need to be able to search for filename in Calendar view, the sooner the better. Thank you!

    "Search by filename" is NOT already in the Media Library. Only "Sort by filename", which is no use if you're looking for a specific photo.

    It's pointless to have the ability to see the filename in the media library. It matters most in the calendar view. It makes no sense to go back and forth between the two to post photos from the same jobs.

    "Search by filename is already in Table View on Media Library!" Could you please explain where this feature is available respectively how to search by file name? Currently. the only way to search by filename is to load all media (we have 700+), which is even a pita without a customziable pagination limit, and search by native browser function. It should be even possible to search in Calendar view.
