Lack of ability to filter/exclude certain text values from the Advanced Search criteria

We have many tasks with the exact same name (with exception of a prefix indicating our product’s style number). I’ve found that when I perform an Advanced Search for the EXACT task title that I want to see, ALL tasks with any of the words included in my search are also found. We need the ability to filter out the fields/values of the task that we DO NOT want included in the search results.

For example, when searching for task “ABC123,” the results include tasks that include ABC123 in the subject, description, and comments. I would like the ability to exclude both description and comments, if I’m specifically looking for tasks with the subject of my search term/string.

This current search results yield years worth of tasks with similar values, but not the actual tasks that I’m looking for. I’d love to see the ‘exclude’ filters expanded on for Advance Search in this way!
