Enhance Page Browsing Function in Message List

In FTM MER, Message List, user has options to select the Next Page/Previous Page/First Page/ Last Page and browse the messages on that page.

However, User is not having option to input the page number and browse the target page right away. It is very critical for the client to input the desired page number.

When there are thousands of messages spread across many pages, currently user has no option but go page by page. This is time taking for the user.

Please enhance page browsing function in Message List.

    For the customer, daily Incoming and Outgoing Message count is around 60K+. During the daily operations, a copy of the message is sent to MER Queue and also Messages from FTM MER are passed to the downstream systems. Copies of messages from the MER Queue will be deleted by house keeping job at the end of the day.

    During the daily operations, there are thousands of messages in MER Queue spread across many pages. By using sorting option user will sort the messages in a MER Queue. After sorting the messages, User will get an idea where the required message can be found and intends go to that particular message. Currently FTM MER is allowing user to go only page by page or go to last page. This is time consuming and not user friendly.

    Please enhance the page browsing function in Message List to go to a desired page.

    Please provide more detail on the use case and what you are trying to achieve. MER today allows for users to go page by page or go to last page.
