On our radar: Good ideas that we will keep an eye on but don’t have a deadline to implement them
Working on it: Good ideas that we’re planning to implement in the next 3-6 months
Not right now:  Ideas that will not be implemented at least in the foreseeable future
Implemented:  Good ideas that we’ve already implemented
Out of scope:  Ideas that don’t match our vision and won’t be implemented.

The current switch environment dialogue could be a lot smarter.As in OutSystems/Myplatform page   all infrastructures that I have access to are listed, I would like to first have an infrastructure selection, and then just a selection of the environments within that infrastructure.This is especially useful if you have access to many infrastructures.

While refactoring a module, it took me a few hours until being able to publish a version. Meanwhile, other developers published versions of several modules.Mine was compared and merged, but then it got an error because of changed references (several other modules have also changed in the same time window).With large modules, all the online checks and consequential popups take a while to appear. In the case of references, I don't see it as a disruptive step to be a standalone interaction. A simple checkbox with "also update all references" in the process or a reminder to update before starting the comparision would be great improvements.

It would be great if the reactive data grid provided associative columns or dependency between columns.For example, there are two dropdown columns, one called Function and the other called Role. When a Function is selected, the dropdown Role will display only the roles belonging to the selected Function.I think it is a very important functionality, used in a lot of cases, so it would be very good having it in the reactive data grid.Thank you

Hi,In Outsystems we have a concept called Applications that are a group of modules that are grouped.To be compliant with Outsystems architecture it's normal to have 2/3 applications that refer to the same business application (as you can see in the image).To allow better governance I suggest creating a new concept called cluster that will improve:Log analysis by business applicationDependencies by business applicationData flow by business applicationTechnical debt (AD) analysisArchitecture reading

Hello,It would be interesting to have a way to export the warnings list of the eSpaces in the Service Center, in order to identify issues that must be resolved, especially security.Regards,Diana Milheiro

Thanks for the Manage Environments option on Service Studio and the possibility to give a name/alias to the environment, to make it perfect I would I love to have the possibility to organize my environments by ordering them as it betters suits my needs so that they appear in the list of Switch Environment in the desired order. For some of us, it will make sense to order by customer and for others by type of environment (DEV, ..., QLT, ..., PRD), for example. PS: The existing order by column action in the Manage Environment list should  have an effect on ordering the dropdown of environments. A t this point changes the ordering of the list but has no effect on the dropdownThanks

It's easy to make it available either with built-in styles or if you change your CSS to a specific class to place a cursor.But it would be great to have classes to place the cursor pointer as we have to place the colors or even the typography, I think it's important to have this CSS class in the OutSystems UI and then if we apply some event on some onClick type element we'll be able to choose the pointer from the cursor to be applied.We could have the context-menu, not-allowed, copy, pointer, at least I can think about these basic and most used cursors.

Service Studio should have new, separate "Tests" tab.This would enable integrating tests to any eSpace and would minimize required overhead for testing any action, including private actions.Why?Testing your code is more professional than not testing.Unit testing should be minimal extra effort for developer, because otherwise tests are usually not done.Publishing new code could be controlled - you cannot publish untested code, or code which has some failing tests, for example.Test code should never go to Production environment.Testing is good.How?Tests are integrated to eSpace/module oml file.During code generation process, actions from "Tests" tab would create a separate .NET project and this project would be a friend assembly (internalsVisibleTo attributes configured) for main project to compile.1-Click Publish deployments with tests could start from (currently underused?) personal area (or another IIS folder), where tests would be run.Depending on how tests go and how is decided in additional configuration, deployment would continue to Public area or show an error in Service studio.This way, creating unit tests would be as effortless as when creating unit tests in any other modern programming language - just few clicks away. There could be also accelerators to generate unit test actions or "system events" to initialize/teardown test runs.Currently, writing any tests to private actions is also either impossible or exposing some unwanted/test related code to production environments.It's a big change, but from discussions with makers/experts @ ODC I've learned this should not be too far-fetched idea to implement. Maybe for P12, please?Another, possibly the simplest way to enable testing / production code separation without massive modifications to existing compiling process could be a capability to define another espace as " friend " espace. This per-espace setting could reveal internal (=OS private) actions to the another espace marked as a friend and thus enable referencing these otherwise out-of-the scope actions for testing purposes.If done like this, feature could be achieved using small amounts of .NET reflection trickery or previously suggested InternalsVisibleTo attribute (that has been around since 2002 release of .NET 2.0).Security-wise, there should be no problems either, (albeit a bit more work during compilation) as friend assemblies can be defined as signed assemblies, too.Personal opinion, but this topic is really heavily connected with OS small book #2, #5 and #7.
