Change manager needs some love

Recommended Posts

A few suggestions for the Change manager.

1. In preferences you can set an inclusion date range for changes.  When applied,  (clicking the refresh button, or start),  it appears to be looking at reports far outside the date range.  This dramatically increases the time it takes to generate the report. The output is correct, just takes longer that it should.  Maybe filter out reports outside the date range when it is generating the report?

2. Need a better way to 'include' computers in a report.  Currently the only option is to 'exclude'.  This is very time consuming if you have 25 computers,  and only want a report on 4 of them.  Maybe a checkbox selection list?

3. I can't seem to find a list of changes that were 'authorized'  Perhaps add that as a column  "Authorized  Y/N"  or something? Maybe add a filter. "Only show authorized/unauthorized changes" This one is pretty important.

4. Related to #2,  On the 'Computer' tab,   right click on a specific computer (or possibly multiple computers),  then choose Quick Report.  This should only apply to the computer that is selected,  not all in the list.

Thanks for your consideration :-)

Thank you for your suggestions.  We'll work on them in the upcoming 2 weeks, and will send you updates via this topic.
