How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Referenced Collections

I would like to be able to easily see which collection that my collection is referenced to.

I can easily see what collections are referenced in my collection, but knowing if I make a change to the membership of x collection then it could effect the membership of y collection would be handy

    Agreed.... a "referenced by other collections" field would be hugely beneficial for instances where you have a collection being referenced as an exclusion by another collection, which has a live deployment against it.,

    There is already a 'referenced collections' field in the console. I would even just like an additional 'referenced in collections' field so I could look at a quick glance in the console to make sure this collection that I want to delete is not used as an include or exclude collection elsewhere. This would help tremendously during collection cleanup activities.

    I second this idea. Perhaps a "References" tab in Collection properties window, displaying direct include/exclude relationships with other collections. Similar to how Application "references" tab does it.
