How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Task Sequence Editor Search

We have over 300 Groups/Steps in a couple of our task sequences. It would be really helpful to be able to search with the Task Sequence Editor. Either by step name or group name. In a perfect world it would be helpful to search descriptions or other text content within each group or step.

        How about adding line numbers to the task sequence and then be able to reference that in the smsts.log. It would also make change management/documentation easier.

        It would greatly speed up everyday processes to be able to perform a Search through task sequences. Especially OSD build task sequences which are very long.

        When Task sequences get longer and longer, it is hard to find specific steps. why not add possibility to search through Task Sequence steps for keywords, like you can with Applications etc.

        Task sequences are now a mature product - a search function should not still be a missing "feature". And exporting from what should be an easy to use GUI to XML only to perform a keyword search is, at best, a waste of time that should not be acceptable for an enterprise level product.

        While I would love to see this in the console, as a workaround you can export the XML and search that file.
