Dear Spectrum Community Users,
Here is the update of the ideas which we reviewed last month.
Thanks to all community members for posting the ideas for CA Spectrum. As always comments and critics are welcomed.
Can we get updates on some of the ideas that have been lingering in an Under Review state?
Differntiate physical and virtual links within Topology Map
Forward spectrum "Scheduled Mainenance" to eHealth "Planned Downtime"
Allow Spectrum to change all model attributes including Model type when a model is reconfigured and changes are detected.
OneClick - Performance - Recording
NCM possibility to add devices to CA Device Families
Those are all years old, and have just been sitting in an Under Review state. There are plenty more that need updates, but those are really egregious cases. It's extremely frustrating that we can have ideas get 75-100 votes, get into review, and then just get forgotten.
Thanks for your inputs. We are reviewing the same. You could find updates for some of those.
The only one that has been updated since I asked for an update is Differntiate physical and virtual links within Topology Map , which has over 100 votes and the only update is to say that it would be hard to do and it will take more time to review. That idea is almost four years old. All of the other ideas that I asked for updates on are at least a year and a half old, and one is five years old. You've had time to think about how to do them. Implement them or reject them already.
I understand that right now you guys are busy with the 10.2 beta. Perhaps you should take some time after 10.2 goes production to clean up the ideas queue before you start work on the next version of Spectrum. We aren't submitting these ideas because we're bored, we're submitting them because they are pain points when we use Spectrum.
Completely understand your point. With the given amount of resources we are trying our best to accommodate sizable amount of ideas into Spectrum releases. You can see from last couple of releases we always have a bucket for Spectrum Community Ideas.
Also we take utmost care while reviewing ideas which high votes. And we don't want to blindly reject them. Specially the ones which are high on effort and costly. At times this result is more time.
Again I am not trying to justify but just trying to be transparent . Rest be assured that we are always listening and we will for sure update the ideas sooner.
Thanks for all your support. I always appreciate customers taking time and providing feedback. Helps us to improve and serve our customers better.
