Add to unfinished attachments a search box or enter FS ID
Please add the ability to finish attachements to people not showing as part of the family tree. currently it only searches parents, siblings, spouses, and children to display in the list. I have several marked "unfinished" but I cannot attache them as they are in laws, or cousins named, especially in obituaries. I know who they are, but I cannot attach them as FS doesn't allow a way to do this. There is no search box or enter an ID number. Please fix this. Reference ID KW63-WWP for the obituary for Ruth Williams Price. This list of unfinished attachements are not able to attach to anyone, but yet I have these people in my family tree, I want to add their FS ID and attach the document to them, but FS wont allow it.

Source Linker does have a means of entering an ID. It is also flexible enough to attach to in-laws or cousins.
To access Source Linker from an "unfinished attachments" notice, just click the "Unfinished Attachments" text.
To attach the source using a profile's ID, first change the record (left-hand) side's focus person to the desired name, using the left-hand "Change" drop-down in the blue strip at the top. Then change the tree (right-hand) side's focus person to the desired ID. To do this, click the right-hand "Change" drop-down in the blue strip, type or paste the ID into the "Go To:" box, and enter or click the curved arrow. Then click "Compare" between the record and the profile, transfer any conclusions you deem correct, and click the blue Attach button.
You can attach a record to a cousin or in-law by using the tree-side "Change" drop-down multiple times. This drop-down shows the direct relatives (parents, spouses, children, siblings) of the current focus person, so for example, you can get to a person's first cousin by first changing the focus to his parent, then to the parent's sibling, and then to that person's child.2
