A collection of good ideas to improve Spectrums usability

  • 1.  A collection of good ideas to improve Spectrums usability

    Posted 07-21-2017 09:34 AM

    In addition to a small discussion i had with Kiran Diwakar at the DevXchange, I've collected some good (and mostly old) small ideas for improvements in Spectrum.

    Many of them seems to be forgotten by CA but I think, most of them are worth of being released. 

     

    Here is my list in chronological order:

     

    Allow to set a maintenance starting now with only end-time:
