We often want to use all or part of the specifications for a Query in a job tracking ticket, some documentation for one of processes, or backing up a Query when we're making changes. It is very tedious having to type out the criteria of an Ad-hoc Query, or OCR and correct them from a screenshot.
Please add a button to the Ad-hoc Query editor to extract the details of the query into a control report. Ideally, this would just encapsulate all the details in text copied to the clipboard and loaded into the system default text viewer (usually Notepad), so we could copy or save it as desired. The format may as well be something like the following:
Query control report: <query name>
Description: <query description>
Category: <query category>
Site: <query site>
Folder: <query folder>
<settings of all the options on the 'Set save options' page>
<text describing the filter criteria, as displayed in the 'Include records where' pane>
<text describing the output fields, as displayed in the 'Results fields to display' pane>
<text displayed in the 'Sort records by' pane>
<text displayed in the 'Include records where' pane>
We used to find the query control reports in the Raiser's Edge quite handy, but having the details available as text would be even better as we often only want part of them.
