I also would like a little more flexibility in the history filtering and sorting.
If I want to check through all the full backups for a particular job, I can't filter to see just those. I can only filter for the actual job name. If I try to type " (Full" at the end of the name, it displays no jobs, even though it shows the job types in the Job Name column. E.g. if the job is called "Main Backup", typing "Main Backup" in the filter shows all full and incrementals, but typing "Main Backup (Full)" shows none.
I can sort by Job Name to group all the full backups together, but then they're in a random date order.
It's also annoying that the filter string on matches the start of the Job Name. If I have many jobs that start with the same string, I have to type a lot more of the name than necessary to match what I want. E.g. if there are jobs called "Main backup 1", "Main backup 2", etc, if I want to see just "Main backup 6", I have to type that whole string. If it was altered to match any part of the Job Name, I could just type "6".
It would also be nice to be able to filter on the Status so I can see, say, all the failures. I can sort on that column to group them together, but again they're in random order.
- Make job type part of the string that's matched with the filter string
- When sorting by any columns, also sort by Start Time (this alone would make most things possible, if not necessarily convenient)
- Filter string can match any part of Job Name/type
- Filter string history
- More complex filter strings, e.g. "JobName:main JobType:Incr Status:fail Before:2017-01-01"
