Enhanced 3270 User interface help should be product sensitive

I am opening this on behalf of DHS Australia, customer number 0079032. This is related to case TS002527500.  

When viewing threads for a Data Sharing Group on screen KDPPTHRD, the user can select View then Filter. The Filter panel that comes up is product sensitive. It shows the column names as they appear on KDPPTHRD screen. However there is no help for this screen. There is nothing on the filter screen that indicates what the valid values are by which to filter KDPPTHRD for any of the filterable attributes.

On KDPPTHRD, the cursor can be located on an attribute column header and press PF1 to get help.  As a result of PTF UI65809 to resolve PH14815 the help panel for the product provides the values that should be used to set the filter on the filtering screen. These values need to be visible from the actual filtering screen

Who would benefit from this IDEA? User productivity would be improved by speeding up the process of setting filters with out guessing what the value of the filter should be for different attributes.
How should it work?

The help that is available for the attribute from the applications screen should be available from the E3270 frameworks screens. The column attribute names are visible on the filter screen so the help should also be available from there.

Idea Priority High
Priority Justification Diagnosis of significant performance issues can be accelerated when total thread volume to analyze, in the thousands, can be reduced to those transactions that are most significant to the business.
