I want to be able to document in SQL Monitor why an alert is set a certain way.
On the alert configuration screen for any alert, at any level I would like to see a comment type box where I can enter in the box the reason the alert is set as it is.
For example if I have disabled the backup overdue alert for a particular database I would like to be able to save that reason in this comment box. Or if I have changed the disk space usage for a particular drive on a server different than the default I want to be able to document the reason why.
I want to see this box on every configuration page - at the server level and below. If there are multiple DBA's that use SQL Monitor we all need to know why something is set the way it is.
Thank you for this suggestion, it makes sense to want to record why certain configuration changes have been made.
We released this enhancement in version 8.0.10 (in July this year – apologies for delay in updating this suggestion).
I will mark this suggestion as Completed, but please do reply if you have any further feedback.

Thanks for the suggestion. We agree this would be really useful so I've raised it as an enhancement (SRP-10944). I can't give you an idea when we might tackle this, but I will update here when we do.
