Syntax highlighting in the console for WQL, PowerShell, and other languages
Editing Query statement for Collections today is awful, the window is small and not re-sizable and it's hard to find typos and errors. A new re-sizable editor with WQL intellisense would be nice.
Syntax highlighting was added in 2010 and has been further improved in 2103. In 2107 we have added a full code editor window that you can use to further improve authoring these things in places in the UI that may not support resizing.

The code editor is a useful feature, but it would also be nice if collection queries, for example, saved your formatting i.e., newline characters, so it would look the same every time you edit the query.

For task sequences that allow code input (command line, PowerShell), apply syntax highlighting to the code
With SCCM adding he ability to run powershell scripts, maybe create the ability to query clients instead of SCCM DB. Or if a powershell script has ran to gather data, store the data to use in collection query.

Now that we have the ability in TP1706 to upload and run PowerShell scripts against endpoints, it has exposed the need to be able to tab complete and validate syntax with intellisense from the console. I'm not asking you to recreate the PowerShell ISE/VSCode, just some rudimentary intellisense for when you are working on the Admin Console.

I'd like to be able to 'browse' from the query design into the places (inventory, mostly) where I need to get things from.
Also, if it kept some 'most recently/commonly used' locations handy, that would be great.
