Data Model object comments


For Data Model objects it would be informative to have to possibility to add comments and notes.

For example a Procedure, under “Options” or a new tab, give the developer the possibility to write comments i.e. the purpose of the procedure, when it was last updated, who created/updated it. It could either be one big free-text-box or several boxes where each box represents different topics (last updated, creator etc).

A bonus would be if you can control the topic for each box.

    Hi Samir,
    agree with your idea.

    I think that could be even better to have this pieces of information saved somewhere: I mean, creating an automatic way to let the developer know when the procedure (and all the other Data Model objects) has been updated and by whom - in addition to the comments that you are suggesting in order to keep track of the purpose (and maybe where it is used/launched).


    Dear Samir,
    I agree!
    It could be very useful for Entities, Cubes, Data Reader (?), and at most: Procedures.
    Indeed, the comments fields are too short to leave enough explanations.
    (in order to explain the content/role of the object and if there were any specific information to get known)


    It seems to reach the same kind of idea posted here:
    You may vote for both in order to increase luck to have it in next BOARD release…
