  1. Add project-wide code for SSIS script tasks

    Allow project-wide shared code in SSIS projects that can be called by any Script Task in the project without the need for an external DLL. Rather like a class library that can be deployed as part of the .ispac file.

  3. Visual Studio should allow SQL updated version to include

    Hi Team,
    When i am trying to use visual studio 2012 and want to access SQL server 2014 instance, continuously we were getting promt message to use only SQL 2012 version.
    But for the same product of microsoft at least it should allow one or two version update can use.

  4. Allow short circuting IF statements to SSRS

    The IIF function in SSRS reports is well know, well know for causing problems when someone expects it to be able to protect them from zero/null values being inappropriate. Why not introduce the IF operator from VB.NET which had the same issue and make it work as expected?

  6. Sequence control of SSIS tasks

    I hope SSIS would provide a function that I can specify a list of Task ID, then at most one of these tasks can be executed at the same time, or I can set execution sequence of them, even though they are belong to different packages.

  8. database project default filegroup

    Can you please add the option to set a FileGroup as Default. I always add additional filegroups to keep the PRIMARY filegroup as empty as possible. When importing a database that follows this layout, all tables end up in the PRIMARY file group since this is the overall default. Can this also be changed so that the filegroup on which the table is created is also included in the script by default.

    I also noticed that the files in the filegroups are not scripted at all. This seems like missing implementation

  9. Right Click View Code option on SQL objects in designer similar to Go to Definition but for SQL

    While in the SQL query designer the ability to effectively do "Go to Definition" on a stored procedure would be helpful. That or the ability to navigate to that object in the Server Explorer would be equally helpful.

  11. Include/Exclude files (rdl,rds) in deployment in rptproj

    Same idea as this: enable developers to exclude Files from build/deployment within BIDS SSRS Projects
    It would be even better to configure that by build configuration (release/debug)

  12. TableAdapter Configuration Wizard Procedure Parameters

    It would be nice if the procedure parameters section of the tableadapter configuration wizard could be expandable in size so that it makes it easier to see the Parameter and Source Column columns. Could we possibly get this feature in a future version of Visual Studio?

  13. Add a feature in SSIS to configure the execution of multiple of instances of a data flow in parallel.

    When working with large source data sets, it would be great to be able to divide the work among multiple instances of a same data flow. From a user standpoint, we could simply add a filter to the source SQL statement to partition the data source.

  15. SQL Query Editor - Keyboard shortcut to switch between Results and Message tabs

    1. In SQL Server Object Explorer, right-click on a server, and select New Query.
    2. Write a simple query that returns a resultset.
    3. Execute it
    4. Notice how by default, the resultset appears in a new pane underneath the T-SQL code. The pane has two tabs names Results and Message.
    5. Create a keyboard shortcut that will toggle between the two tabs.
    6. There is a "Collapse Pane" button. Click it.

    7. Now there is a single pane with three tabs on the bottom: T-SQL, Results, and Message.

    8. The same keyboard shortcut should toggle between these.
