    Sorry, a bit late on replying regarding use cases.

    I am often asked to do "one-off" analysis or debugging. For example, "what is the deal with this bad-looking data point?" So I'll go in, run a bunch of queries, figure things out, resolve the situation, move on with life. Now, 3 months later, "I think we're hitting that same weird issue again that you resolved 3 months ago. Can you help?" And at this point, I don't recall what I did. I didn't save the scripts I wrote at the time, because it was just a one-off exercise. And this is where the history kicks in. IF I had it enabled, I'd simply search my archives, find my queries, and save myself potentially a few hours of time. My customer is happy, Red Gate has saved the day and proven its value, and I'm elated to have not had to waste my time. Win-win-win for everyone!

    I just came here specifically to request this feature. I don't know why it would be low on your backlog just because it's in some other product. You're not selling some other product and it's a *huge* gap in yours. Please implement it. I don't want to install two products with overlapping functionality.
