  1. Include a task within Task Factory to import and export to and from Excel files

    We are recent purchasers of Task Factory and are very pleased.

    However, one item that we miss compared to CozyRoc is a way to import and export to and from Excel without the epic struggles with formatting, the Jet engine, and so one. This is the one task missing in TF compared to CozyRoc.

    Please please consider adding this task and the matching connectors. Also please pass this on to the proper person why both can get this on the list to be developed and has sympathy for the plight that occurs when any of us in Corporate America has…

      • change the Dimension Merge SCD

        to allow a column to be specified in the "Variable containing now value". I don't like the fact that I'm limited to use a variable. In my dataset I could have records with different Start dates that I'd like to use to control the Effective/Expiry date.

        Would also be really nice to have a SCD0 option under the Existing Dimension Input Column Definitions.

          • Task Factory: Secure FTP - Allow for dual Authentication through the connection manager

            At the current moment you can only choose between the option to authenticate via "Password" or "Key File". In my environment I need to connect to my SFTP using both these items. I would like the functionality to be able to choose both options and populate with values.

            • Task Factory Advanced lookup transform: Clear cache

              Add a property to the advanced lkp transform that allows the developer to keep and share the cache within a package. In the current version the cache gets cleared after use and you have to make a other instance of the cache with the same data, this is a bit annoying with large fact tables.

              • Enhance Upsert to enable simplified cloning for staging and handling of deletes

                We use upsert to pull 1-on-1 copies from our production environment to staging. In case a source system does not correctly log modified rows, we use the hashing transform to calculate a checksum and use column compare to trigger row updates and last modified timestamps from upsert.

                However, sometimes we like to either replicate or flag rows that were deleted in the source system. The way it is now, we have to pull from the source system and the copy, sort, join, and match on keys being available left or right (indicates insert or delete) and if the calculated checksum…

                  Have a checkbox in the deployment utility that will create a msi installation file for my packages. Very common that developers are not permitted to deploy and to have a package that can depoy all changes that can be handed to DBA would be great.

                        • After addigin the auditting framework BiXpress screws up the diagram layouts.

                          After the audtting framework is applied, how about iterating through all of the data flows and resetting them to use Format->Auto Layout -> Diagram or do something... they look like spaghetti after your done.

                          • Task Factory: Start Tableau Report Refresh

                            Please consider adding a task in Task Factory that can refresh a report in Tableau.

                            Often a report refresh cannot be done until a data warehouse load is finished. Having an object to kick that off directly from inside SSIS would add gigantic amounts of awesome sauce to an already amazing product.

                              I would like to see the ability to Execute an SSRS report from SSIS. This way when data is loaded and successful, the reports can automatically be run and then possibly emailed to the user in one single process vs having seperate ETL and Report jobs run.

                              • Add the ability for the Task Factory Error Output Destination to "complete", even when no error rows are passed.

                                We want to be able to capture the Error Output primary key in all cases, whereas by testing and looking at your demo if you join multiple error outputs sources to a single output description task you can only capture the primary key for one error output source. For instance, in the screen shot from your help file, we want to capture the Error Output from both the Flat File Source and the Staging Table so we could see truncation occurs.

                                  Create an Execute PowerShell task for Task Factory. This task would include options such as executing specific script (cool feature would be to scan script and present dynamic fillable inputs for any parameters). Also could just write custom PowerShell script in task.

                                        • have DOC xPress produce more robust reporting for lineage and impact analysis.

                                          I would like to be able to export the data from lineage in a report-able format. (This column is affect by these packages/stored procedures). I would like to get a full list of affected packages.
