    • SSMS - Include table name in temporary name for "Select Top 1000 Rows" command

      It is quite common to start a database search by right clicking a table and selecting "Select Top 1000 Rows". When doing that a temporary name like "SQLQuery{n}.sql - {server}.{database name}" is given and shown on the respective tab in the UI. The actual file name on disk is some seemingly random value. I think it would be very helpful if the name shown on the tab in the UI could *start with* the table name so that it is easier to navigate between your currently open tabs. My suggestion would be to replace "SQLQuery" with the name of the…

                      • Stop development of Database Manager

                        I can't see the requirement to spend time/resources on developing this - instead spend the time integrating Azure more into SQL Management Studio instead, to the degree that it doesn't matter in the end whether you are working with a local database or remote Azure database.

                        Apologies, but I really don't see the point of the on-line management tool as all you will be doing is replicating the functionality of Management Studio.

                        • Use local variables in views

                          I'd like to use local variables inside views to return language specific data.
                          Right now inside my procedure I have variable that returns current user language setting, then using case (or iif) I'm returning one from two variables.
                          I'd like to add same logic to view, but I can't do that right now.

                          Sorry if this is wrong place for posting SQL Server ideas, but I could't find another place.

                            • SSMS - Add table dialog goes in to background, as external window. Ideally it should be modal window.

                              Few dialogs that appear as part of SSMS, go in the background. Usually you cannot do alt+tab too.. you need to drag the SSMS down to click on close buttons to these dialogs.

                              Amazing product guys.. keep up the good work.

                                Next versions of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, like Windows 8.x, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016 are not desktop OS's there are mobile OS's.

                                With tons of telemetry services, ads, geolocation, phone, notifications, contacts, airplane mode and xbox services including all this services in Windows Server 2016, there are no options to a desktop computer beyond Windows 7, or no options beyond Windows Server 2008 R2.

                                Be serious and Windows 7 is the last desktop OS developed by Microsoft, and Windows Server 2008 R2 is last serious OS server developed by Microsoft.

                                      • Please, add a T-SQL XOR Logical Operator (not bitwise comparator that exists).

                                        SQL Server is the only DBRMS without a XOR logical comparision operator.
