  1. Improve the "Open in Excel" context menu entry by preserving the data values

    Probably under the wrong category as I didn't see a related option for Excel, but bit values such as 1 and 0 should be preserved as such. Decimal values such as 12.000 should not have trailing zeroes truncated. And the most rage-inducing is NULL becoming an empty cell on a spreadsheet.

    • Peek Table Rows

      It would be great to have a feature where I have a table highlighted in my sql that a context menu would be available to peek table rows, so it would run a select TOP (10) * FROM TableName. The 10 could be a configuration option.

      • Create a Task list for --#TODO: comments

        It would be useful if a task list list of --#TODO: comments were visible like in the tab history so you can monitor / jump to these items

        • setup

          It would be helpful to have a CLI setup or a config file that can be used to onboard new users with team settings, rather than having them reconfigure Prompt once it's installed. Having team folders and formatting/behavior settings consistent from the start is needed.

          • Change Connection for all tabs

            I would love to see a feature that allows you to change the connection of all currently open tabs to a different connection.

            • Set indent size

              We frequently need to move large blocks of code to the left or to the right a specific number of spaces. It would be nice to be able to see on the toolbar the current indent size and have the ability to change this indent size on the toolbar.

              • Query Execution History: Search by Date

                Please allow users to search Query Execution History by Date, or better yet, Date Range. Since the the execution history is already stored in a db file, I am hoping this is an easy add.

                • Option to have the results 'Script as Insert' use SELECT statements instead of values

                  If easy to implement have the option to have the results 'Script as Insert' use SELECT statements (with UNION ALL between them) instead of VALUES (vals),(vals),etc. SELECT causes much less logging, "You can use INSERT INTO <target_table> SELECT <columns> FROM <source_table> to efficiently transfer a large number of rows from one table, such as a staging table, to another table with minimal logging. Minimal logging can improve the performance of the statement and reduce the possibility of the operation filling the available transaction log space during the transaction." -- https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/t-sql/statements/insert-transact-sql (Under best practices)

                  • Have the update process default to only updating installed tools

                    I don't use SQL Prompt in Visual Studio and likely never will. However, every time I update, the updater defaults to installing it for VS and updating SSMS. It would be nice if the update process defaulted to only doing updates.

                    • "Script as INSERT" should respect "Insert full INSERT statement" setting

                      The new "Script as INSERT" feature generates scripts that do not include a column list. The generated script should include a column list if the "Insert full INSERT statement" setting is checked.

                      • Hotkey to join current line with next

                        This is simply to address what I consider a missing hotkey from SSMS / Visual Studio.
                        It really is as simple as joining the current line with next, replacing all whitespace from the end of this line and the start of the next line with a single space.
                        The motivation in the context of SQL Prompt is to "undo" some formatting changes that I would prefer not to have.

                        As a future step, some intelligent wrapping options with the hotkey would be great.

                        • Feature Suggestion List, Sort Search Results

                          This suggestion is for your feature suggestion list web pages. When I search your site to see if someone has already suggested something similar to what I am about to post, I would like to sort the results by most similar (this seems to be the default) OR by most popular (so I can bump up the vote if the suggestion matches mine).

                            • Duplicate Tab

                              One of the common UI interaction features in browsers like Chrome and IE is Duplicate Tab feature.

                              Ususally the reason you might want to do this, could be because you want to keep an UNALTERED TAB and do SOMETHING DIFFERENT with another page...

                              In SSMS this could be a great feature. Example of use please (- I hear you ask)? You could be trying to change script and test the effect of that change vs the original!

                              MUCH MUCH Further down the line, you could extend this feature, to highlight the differences between tabs, a bit similar to file compare…

                              • Option to disable inline button that list actions when hitting the CTRL key

                                Please, please provide an option to disable inline button that list actions when hitting the CTRL key. It is very intrusive and interrupts my workflow. I understand it may be helpful for others so all I ask is for an option to disable the feature. Thank you for your consideration.

                                  One the features that I liked more from SSMSBoost is the option to visualize the Binary data opening as specific format, is that something possible to have in SQL Prompt?

                                  On the result Grid you can right click the binary field and open it as PDF or JPG, etc.

                                  • Allow object definition tooltips when there are squiggly lines (issues).

                                    When there is an issue with a line that has an object (table) the tooltip no longer works. The squiggly line issue takes priority. It would be nice to have a way to still view the object definition.

                                    May be holding down a specific key could temporarily turn off squiggly lines.

                                    • Code Analysis SC004: Make keywords user editable

                                      Code Analysis Rule SC004 "Found TODO comment" doesn't just look for a TODO comment, it also looks for other keywords. One of these is "Fixed", which is generating a number of false positives in our code, because it is a financial application, and "Fixed income" is a term we use quite a bit in explanations.

                                      The actual keywords that trigger this rule are, according to FabiolaB

                                      •todo
                                      •bug
                                      •fix
                                      •warning

                                      1) Make the list of keywords used by this rule user editable.
                                      2) Make it an option to have this rule only trigger on all caps keywords.

                                        Search Analysis Rules
                                        There are a lot of analysis rules, and I spend too much time looking through them to find the exact rule I'm looking for. It would be nice if there were a search box where I could search for keywords so I can zero in on the one I need right away.

                                          The ability to script objects based on a filter.. In SSMS there is no quick way to script a subset of items other than selecting them one by one.
