  1. If a person tries to execute a SQL script without a WHERE clause, it would be nice if SQL Complete would display a warning. This would eliminate issues with accidentally updating all records in a table because a where clause was not specified.

  2. When searching in execution history, the search value is used pretty quickly after you stop typing. This means that you have to wait for the search to finish even if you weren't done typing the search string. It also means that if you have a typo, you have to wait for the search to finish before you can correct it. I keep a long history of executed SQL, so each search takes a while to run.

    In my opinion, it would be better to have a dedicated "Search" button so that you could submit your search string when you're finished…

  3. An option to only allow editing a single instance of a Stored Procedure, Function, etc. (and perhaps the name in the tab or top of file). Or at least a warning if this procedure is already open in another tab.

  4. Create SQL Complete Extension for Visual Studio Code
    More and more I find our developer teams using Visual Studio Code as single IDE for all development and scripting. While the SSMS and Visual Studio extensions are great, most of our developers are not using those tools as much and find it cumbersome to open up the supported IDE's to get SQL Complete's benefits.

  5. Please add the ability to color brackets. Just like it happens in Excel, for example, when you write a function. The opening and closing brackets are marked in one color.

  6. With the tab coloring feature, it can be difficult to tell which tab is the currently active tab just by looking at them. Some of the colors of the disabled tabs come through as slightly different than when they are active, but look like they might be active because they are close to other colors.

    I would suggest either making all inactive tabs gray, or to introduce some other type of visual queue to help easily distinguish active from inactive tabs.

    I can't upload a screenshot here but I do have one as an example.

  7. Enhanced Documents Sessions

    The main issue I have with SQL Management studio is managing all the tabs and code. One great feature would be the ability to automatically group all sessions by the active database. A modern approach would be to have "grouping" tabs, where you can place code, or a tree approach with subtrees.

    The single biggest issue I have is editing stored procedures/functions. If you multiple tabs with the same proc and edit one, then open the other tab and edit by mistake, it is a disaster. Being able to label a session with the actual stored proc…

  10. I would like an option for column aliases. I would like to choose between = or AS for the "Alias sign".
    The formatting should be done based on this "alias sign" and also be aligned by the alias sign.

    I prefer the = sign , but formatting doesn't seem to accept that as an alias now.

    Example before formatting:

    SELECT colA as [Column A], columnB as [ColumnLonger B]
    FROM Table_1 t

    Formatting when "=" is used as "Alias sign";

    SELECT [Column A] = t.colA
    ,[ColumnLonger B] = t.columnB
    FROM Table_1 t

    Formatting when "AS" is used as "Alias sign":

    SELECT…

  12. Have the ability to train intellisense when joining tables to learn which tables join together.

    so that in the future you can just type:
    "select * from employees e
    left join "

    and intellisense gives a drop down list of related tables, which when selected writes out the table name AND join columns.

    i.e.:
    "select * from employees e
    left join "
    and intellisense suggests: "manager m on m.managerID = e.managerID"

  14. Example 1:
    If you are using a NOT declared variable @var1, @var1 will get underlined and there is a tooltip with the error.
    On the tooltip there could be a suggestion: "add declare @var1 int".
    Example 2:
    If you are executing a procedure and you are missing some mandatory parameters then there could be the solution "add missing parameters" on the tooltip

  15. We have started using serverless SQL Pool in Synapse, on top of a data lake.

    In SSMS it behaves mostly as a "regular" SQL Server, however intellisense does not work at all with SQL Complete.
    Please implement intelllisense for Synapse.

  16. It would be very helpful to be able to right click on a tab in SSMS and have the option to rename it.

    I currently have "SSMS Tools" installed to be able to accomplish this. Would be great to have the option in SQL Complete and be able to uninstall "SSMS Tools"

  18. When auto-expanding an insert or update statement by pressing the tab key, the column list provides default values for the columns. With DateTime and DateTime2 in particular, it would be helpful to configure if you want to use the UTC datetime or the current timezone. Our company exclusively stores datetimes in UTC, so to have this default this way would be extremely helpful!

    CREATE TABLE #tmp (ID INT, CreatedDateUtc DATETIME2, Name NVARCHAR(50))

    INSERT INTO #tmp (ID, CreatedDateUtc, Name)
    VALUES (0, SYSDATETIME(), N''); -- allow this to populate as SYSUTCDATETIME() or GETUTCDATE(), depending on DATETIME2 vs DATETIME

  19. In SQL Complete, I would love an option that lets you Format Selection but only changes the casing to what you have specified in your active profile. It would leave all other formatting as is.

  20. I previously used SSMSBoost. There was a feature, Query Post-Execution Handlers, that included Results per Email as an option. This feature leveraged PowerShell as the engine, perhaps because it was a Windows installation, and a "script generator" dialog box that converted selected options and variables into a PowerShell script and email message. I would have added a screen capture of this interface, but this post won't accept attachments. The feature also accepted a threshold so it would only apply to queries that exceed a specified number of seconds. It was nice to be able to set this up for long…
