I use Lightroom Classic 10.2. With macOS Big Sur 11.2.3 on a 2019 16" MBP.
This is my workflow. I import the photos in lightroom Classic. And then export them to JPG using the original filenames (series, that i always reset back to 0000).
I have a workflow where i give my clients a wetransfer with all the low res JPG's. And they download it and make their own selection by giving me a chronological list of filenames of the images they want. They sent me this via email.
Then i paste the list in notes app and edit them in Lightroom Classic and check them off one by one in a chronological order as i go.
However i was wondering if there is a way. Whereas the list of filenames that they give me.
I could somehow input in Lightroom Classic so that i only see the clients selection?
The goal is not having to scroll through the photos anymore to find the right filename, thus the according image that i need to edit.
Thanks for your time and energy.

Copy the file names (or file numbers) from your e-mail, then in Lightroom Classic, open the Filter Bar, click on text, select Filename, paste list into the Filter Bar
i'm gonna try it! thanks!!
I'll keep you posted.
To build on dj_paige's answer, be sure that the filenames are separated by spaces or commas, as shown in his screenshot -- if you copy from a list with each filename on a separate line, it won't work. Also, if the filenames themselves contain spaces, it won't work.
SOme more details from my notes-
To find a large selection of images from a text list you need to follow a set procedure-
Note: It does not work if there are spaces in filenames!
Lightroom-Classic needs access to all images that may be in the list- Click on ‘All Photographs’ in the Library Catalog panel- left of screen, (or select the folder where all the searched images are known to exist), then-
or Click "Text" on the Library filter bar, and set it to- Filename / Contains.
You will see all the listed images by Filename that can be then added to a Standard Collection.
Select all [CTRL+A], Click the Collection Panel [+], Check ‘add selected images’.
