  1. Enabled Intellisense conflicts with SQL Prompt and needs to be disabled. This also disables Code Folding feature (Outline Statements) of SSMS, which is very useful for large coding projects.
    It would be helpful if SQL Prompt were to offer the similar feature.

  2. When hovering over an object like a Proc or a View, and you click the link in the pop-up to view the contents of that object. It would be nice if there was a simple search function. Many times when I'm viewing the contents of an object, it's just because I want to see where it's making a particular reference, so I have to copy, open a new tab and then search.

  3. It helps avoiding join on the same column (especially at inner join).
    Example:
    UPDATE A SET Column1 = B.Column2 FROM TableA AS A INNER JOIN Table B ON A.Column3 = A.Column3.
    It happens usually by accident. The statement should be:
    UPDATE A SET Column1 = B.Column2 FROM TableA AS A INNER JOIN Table B ON A.Column3 = B.Column3.

  4. There are times when want to be able to reference a specific file name in, for example, bug reports. This option is to allow the selected filename (or filename with path) to be copied so that is can be pasted into other documentation.

  5. Please introduce Schema-Folders in SQL-Server Object Explorer
    as shown in
    https://github.com/nicholas-ross/SSMS-Schema-Folders

    Or make SQL-Prompt working together with
    https://github.com/nicholas-ross/SSMS-Schema-Folders.

    The Features "Show in Object Eplorer" and "Skript Object as ALTER"
    don't work together with Nicolas Ross' Schema Folders

  7. Have it not break Visual Studio 2017 even when selecting that you don't want it to be integrated with it.
    The problem is that we could no longer get latest version after installing your software and then rebooting. Here is an email that I just sent to a group of people that have had the issue for at least a week before we narrowed the problem...

    Guess what!?

    We found what caused the issue, can reproduce it, and fix it.

    The issue is with Redgate’s software, specifically SQL Prompt for us.
    This is the reason that John never had the…

  8. Sometimes SQL Prompt generates an alias that matches an existing snippet key. My suggestion would be to ignore snippets when it's an auto generated alias.
    example:
    select * from DataEnvironment de (where de is the automatic alias) becomes
    select * from DataEnvironment DELETE

    It's rather annoying :)

  9. As we are using a dedicated group of virtual machines for using our high privilege accounts, we don't know at login time on which machine we will have a session. Currently the settings of SQL Prompt are stored under “…\AppData\Local...”. After each logoff we loose these settings. According to the Microsoft standards, the settings should be stored under “…\Appdata\Roaming...”. Could this be changed in a future version?

  10. Changing

    SELECT TOP 10...

    to

    SELECT TOP (10)... should be a formatting option.

  11. When putting a COUNT in a select field, the default option in intellisense is sysxmitbody.count. I understand if I have a field that contains the aggregate name in my table that you suggest it first, but I never want sysxmitbody.count - and if I do, I'd expect to go looking for it.

    I feel like I've hit this problem with other aggregates as well, but can't find another example at the moment.

    Not sure the best fix, maybe list all system tables after user tables and functions?

  13. When auto-completing an "EXEC storedProc" statement, SQL Prompt will generate the input arguments (and outputs) and generate sample values for the input arguments. If an input argument is of type datetime, SQL Prompt generates a string literal that is equivalent to current date and time in UTC. Please provide an option to either generate a string literal that is the current date and time in the local time zone.

  15. Smart rename doesn't work on Azure SQL Database without creating a SQL login to use for the task. Be nice to support connections via Active Directory Password, or any of the other Azure AD auth options.

  16. It would be incredibly useful to have Smart Rename have the option to generate a synonym that points the old name to the new one, in order to maintain functionality for any legacy applications accessing the database via those old object names.

  17. So I'm not sure if this is something that SQL Prompt has the ability to do or not as far as access to SSMS.

    When you customize syntax coloring in SSMS, it sees variables, tables, column names, etc all as the same thing...."Identifiers"....I would love it if I were able to specify a different coloring scheme for variables, separate from the rest of the identifiers.

  18. Please add option to specify regular expressions to ignore prefixes.
    So if I have a pattern for table/view/SP prefix I would not need to specify all the options/combinations.

  19. Ability to easily identify user-created snippets from default Redgate snippets.

    I love snippets and I create a ton of them, but there's no easy way for me to filter the list of snippets to see which ones I created vs the ones that shipped with the product. I'd love the ability to be able to filter the list of snippets to show my custom snippets so I can find them easily.

    (My work around is just to use a naming convention that groups them all, but this feels inefficient because it requires that I type more letters to activate the…

  20. It's currently possible to align operations in WHERE which is great, but BETWEEN is not aligned.
    Example - currently:
    WHEREModifiedDate BETWEEN DATEADD(MONTH, -6, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()
    AND City
    __________= 'Bothell'
    OR LEFT(PostalCode, 2)
    = 'CB'
    OR PostalCode
    _______= @prefix + @suffix

    Expected:
    Example - currently:
    WHEREModifiedDate_BETWEEN DATEADD(MONTH, -6, GETDATE()) AND GETDATE()
    AND City
    ________= 'Bothell'
    OR LEFT(PostalCode, 2)
    = 'CB'
    OR PostalCode
    _______= @prefix + @suffix
