Forum / Remote Desktop Manager - Feature Request

Edit vs. Properties menu

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hi Devolutions,

In RDM there is an Edit menu and a Properties menu which are essentially the same.
We have users which are allowed to change an entry and other users that are only allowed to open/view an entry.
The users that can only open/view an antry, cannot view all the details of an entry (for example the SAPgui SystemNo).

The Edit vs. Properties menu is also mentioned by Christian/Xanacas in thread
https://forum.devolutions.net/topic23831-user-interface.aspx
The solution mentioned is to remove the properties menu.

My counter-suggestion is to make the properties read-only and available to everyone.
The edit option can stay as it is.

This way, there is a possibility for non-change users to view all the information.

Greetings,
Dion

Hi,
I will add a feature request but it's not simple. We will have to modify all the property sections to support the read-only mode.

Hi David,

I did not imagine it would be hard to do. I do not know the inside of RDM so I may very well be thinking too easy.
Just thinking, what would happen if you only enable the properties option in the menu for everyone, including people with view only-rights?
Maybe a user could then get the usual properties popup but get an error when trying to modify something.
If this doesn't help, I'll let you figure it out.

Greetings,
Dion
