When using "Back" browser function PLEASE put me back at the same place in the LONG list!
Although http://sqlmonitor.uservoice.com/forums/91743-suggestions/suggestions/2022999-add-previous-next-navigation-to-alert-details talks about previous/next, buried in it is the problem of wading through PAGES, AGAIN of stuff I've hunted through.
I'd like to add this separate request to deal with the simple issue of "put me back at the same place in the list as I was when I clicked an Alert to view".
I should not be forced to clear younger Alerts just so the Alert I'm on appears on page 1, either (not an elegant workaround).
We ran a series of usability sessions which included the new work we have completed adding previous/next (well, newer/older) and making filters persist, to understand how we should adapt this.
Now, when you work through a number of alerts using the newer/older navigation, clicking on the inbox will take you to the inbox at the point you would be – i.e. you will ‘emerge’ at that point. Hopefully this will solve the problem as you will not ‘be forced to clear younger alerts’.
We hope this solution works for you and we’d be interested to hear how you find the new features.
Thanks for your detailed suggestion. We're keen to improve the experience of using the Alerts page and this is something we are discussing right now along with persisting the filtering - to have the ability to use Next/Prev through the alerts in a filtered list and then return to the filtered list 'at the same place in the list' as you say, along with an easy way to clear the filter or refresh the filtered list.
We'll post back here soon with our progress...
