I know this is a minor point, but I’m getting a lot of feedback from my team on this. Many of our instances have lengthy names and are only difference in the last few characters. In the Dashboard, Explorer and Instances pages the truncated name in the SQL Server column all look the same. In the Explorer page hovering over the name causes a tool tip to popup and show the full name, but the same isn’t true on the Dashboard or Instance pages. It would really help if this could be extended to those pages.
Hi, Jim. Thanks very much for pointing this out. I’ll forward this information to Vicky, the Product Manager for SQL elements. She’s at TechEd today, but I’ll make sure she’s aware of this request.
I’ve added this feature request to our system and I’d be interested to know if you have any other ideas on how to handle long server names. Would there be any kind of setting which would make this easier? Are there any products you know of which handle this especially well?
The only thing I’ve seen is an adjustable column width (like in Excel). I like the ‘tool-tip’ pop-up. I think that works well in this case.
