Add Form Filter to filter single column

A manager had a request the other day for a filter that would allow him to quickly search for an item in a list by the ID. I had done this numerous times at my former employer but couldn’t remember how to. I reached out to 2 former colleagues (Erich and Erik) and they helped me out.
