Allow Searching/Sorting of Databases in Distribution Lists
suggested this on December 19, 2013 01:17
We currently use Multiscript heavily to manage around 400 databases (and growing quickly) across about 20 database servers. There's currently not a great way to search for individual databases in the list by server or name (more important). We've been forced to reverse engineer your .dat files to generate multiple distributions lists based on our client list. One sorts by date created, one alphabetically, one by server (then alphabetically) and finally we've built an individual distribution list per server. While we've implemented this workaround and it works pretty well, we're still missing a way to find and run a script on one individual database quickly. Currently we have to go into our alphabetical view and scan down the massive list for the database in question. Ideally there'd be a textbox at the top of the database list that would filter while you type based on a partial string match. While additional built in sorting of lists would be nice, again we have a workaround, so it's not top priority for us.
The database search would be a HUGE time saver for us. Let me know if you need any further details on this.
