Hello CRS, here are a few more suggestions (+ wishes) that may be helpful (if they seem worthwhile for implementation for you - its your program and work, i appreciate everything you can implement^^)
option to show "ID", every monitor entry seems to be unique (when i switch between monitor files i can see that the same monitor is saved within the file but changes settings when i saved it changed, so on 1 file its monitoring, other one its not) - i think they get some ID or similar on them, so would be cool if we can show in another filter-tab the ID number
this can ensure that when i change monitor values in different saved files, we surely pick the right monitor (for the case that e.g. name is identical and we could change the wrong one)
option to "Lock" monitor: maybe its just me but i like when i can like double save it - i always like when i can lock things i dont want to change or accidently delete. could be a button in monitor-specific settings "Lock this Monitor" and if ON you cannot change or settings from this monitor (or at least its not possible to delete)
a Monitor Name search-engine. Best way: type a part of the name and only those are listed, rest vanish / ok way: exact matching beginning with first letter of monitor name and shows everything in range
a priority list (thats probably very complicated to do):
like the computer can handle 4 monitors at a time (user can enter a number in options as maximum value [i dont mean the setting that already exists, but very similar], but what when 7 monitors go live? then it would pick the 4 with highest priorioty (set for each by user, if none is set, that its treated last priority)
- if for example 4 monitors run with no priority and another 2 with higher priority would go live it ends one running 4 and starts the first new, then same for 2nd. it only continues checks for priority monitors as long as one monitor with set priority is live. and if all 4 monitors have high priority, it will only end the one with least priority when a higher goes live.
THIS IDEA IN SHORT: we set maximum value of downloaded monitors. we can give a monitor a unique priority number in options tabs (thats not the "Rank" i suggested few posts ago.). and if the max value is reached, JMR will only download the high priorty ones up to capacity chosen by user.
Possibilty to chose multiple Monitors (ctrl + click) to delete a given amount of monitors at once
Top-bar option button: "Hide disabled Monitors" as ON/OFF option
JMR Settings option: "Hide "Last Run" Filter from Monitor Menu" as ON/OFF option ... Last Run i think nobody really uses because you only check if you think something is wrong, but you can also check status for this, so i never looked at last run.
Hope some of these ideas are good to improve the Monitors, since thats the strongest Part of JMR i think :)
