How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Task Sequence - View Only option

Add Option to View TS, instead of "edit". Often times I just want to look at a TS for reference, and not edit it. Just safe guarding the TS from my accidental clicks.

    What Gary said:
    View only should include the ability to copy steps from the TS
    This would be great to copy steps from one existing TS into another (in edit mode) without risking to change the first one or run into console errors.

    Yes please. Could we include a "Properties" button added to the top-right buttons on the Edit Task Sequence window?

  • Steven hosking commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    99% of the time when we look at Task sequences we are wanting to edit the steps, not properties. can the default double click on a task sequence be changed from opening the Properties tab to open the Edit Steps page?

    Great idea, also useful when just checking stuff and not wanting to lock other users out.

    Would also like to see Open as Read Only as the default double-click option (rather than opening Properties).

    Make Double clicking the TS default to Read Only. Have Read Only the top option, then Edit below it on the context menu.
