Filter the list of jobs by job name on UI

It is useful to be able to look at the history of runs for a single job across many branches.  This can be particularly useful when attempting to find changes in the runtime of a job.  The current UI doesn't have any filtering capabilities that would allow limiting the jobs view to a single job name.  I'd like to see a filter on this page where I could enter a job name and have the results limited to jobs matching that name.

    Hi all,

    This is a great idea! Thank you for bringing it to us. As we overhaul our current UI, something that's come to our awareness is the need for better navigation between jobs in a workflow, but also between the same job in a run (as you mentioned above). We are planning a new filtering capability, but it's filtering down a workflow list page by branch/triggerer/project. We're also thinking of a search bar you could type the name of the job in, but again you'd see it within a workflow map.

    I'd like to understand the process and mindset you're coming from in proposing this idea better so we can know if we're solving your need.

    Would any of you be interested in doing a formal user-interview with us? This is a 1-hour recorded video call in which we'll preview our new UI designs to you and assess whether we've solved your problems. We're happy to share a $50 gift card as a token of our gratitude if you participate.

    If you're open to it, please book some time here: https://calendly.com/circleci-xteam/60min

    Thank you in advance, hope to learn from some of you.
