    • Task Factory: XML Output Destination - Have the ability to choose between UFT8 with or without BOM

      At the moment the component automatically uses either UTF8 or Unicode with BOM. It would be great to have the ability to choose whether it uses BOM or not.

      • Task Factory : AD groups

        IT would be nice to add and remove people from groups in AD. We create security in our system based on data in our system. It would be nice if we could export to AD.

        • PW Software Automated Pre-Requisite Utility

          Is there an automated way (e.g. a utility) that will detect whether or not PW Software pre-requisites are met?  Would be a very nice-to-have capability.

          • Improve the updater for the workbench

            The current update process is very clunky. The product is registered and has license keys yet it takes me to the free trial download and forces you to log in. Seems like that process could be streamlined and made a lot more user friendly.

            • capture the Bulk API Job ID from Salesforce Destination

              Background:
              •Using TF SFDC Destination
              •Using UPSERT (but relevant for other actions also)
              •Using Bulk Load (in parallel but this isn’t material)

              Use Case/Problem Statement:
              When bulk loading to SFDC, the TF component submits the job to SFDC and then (assuming success on the submit, not the processing of the data) returns a “complete” and “success” response. As part of this submission, the component must be receiving a JobId from SFDC and currently not using it/doing naything with it. Could we add an extra output to the component (it currently allows for Error output) to direct that JobId to another…

              • Task factory XML task

                It would be beneficial to have a task which could read through an XML file as a source in order to separate necessary nodes for destination insert.

                • Task Factory: UPSERT Destination - Ability to handle inserts and updates of the same key in one execution

                  Currently if I were two send down two rows with the same business keys from a source that do not exist in the destination an insert error will occur. The component should be able to know to insert the first value that is presented and the rest of the rows will be sent as updates.

                  • Monitoring Console: Package Executions List

                    Add the ability to sort and filter the Package Execution Pane, for each of the columns.

                    Example, if there are many packages, the ability to sort by package name could allow for quick comparison of the same package run over a few days.

                    Alternatively, with filtering, filtering to only the failed packages would quickly find those packages that need attention, out of a large list of packages.

                    • BI xPress: Reporting Console needs time filtering

                      The reports that are generated by the BI xPress Reporting Console need a time filter setting. Time filtering would greatly improve these reports so that we could see the report averages, longest running reports on average, frequent reports, and active users for a given period of time.

                      • BI xPress: Deployment From Source Control

                        I would like a way to choose TFS as a source location in the deployment task. It would also be helpful if you could select a label and location. This would give a way to track what code was deployed on what day.

                        • Allow any character to be read as a delimiter by the TF File Gateway Task

                          It would be helpful if the TF File Gateway Task would allow the user to input any character as the file delimiter. This will create a more dynamic component that would be very useful!

                          • Task Factory: Salesforce Destination for Leads and Cases - Allow selection for Assignment Rule to be removed.

                            The Insert and Update options for Salesforce Destination with Leads and Cases will automatically select an Assignment Rule if at least 1 exists, and there is no option to deselect. This is causing issues with cases that do not require an assignment rule, as it will run the case to the default Assignment Rule result.

                                SSIS is able to handle MS messages only. It would be great, if Task Factory could handle java messages too (transfrom java messages into MS messages and vice versa)

                                  It would be nice rather than simply just getting the name of the files from a directory the component would bring back more details similar to the File Properties Task or similar to a DIR command. This would include information like: name of folder, size,creation date & time etc...

                                      • SCD Effective Date -> Expired Date

                                        There is no option to let the expired date of the old row, and effective date of the new row to be equal. It would be nice to have the option. As it is now, there are tiny time-gaps between SCD2 update rows, that could cause issues. If Effective and Expired were equal, users would be forced to do >= Effectivedate < Expireddate selects, but then the result would atleast be perfect.

                                        Ralph Kimball also discussed this in his Data Warehousing in Depth training and there is a mention of it in the Data Warehouse Toolkit 3rd edition.
