          • Connect to a fileshare hosted on a server

            In the File Share Inventory section it would be extremely beneficial if I could enter the address to a file share that is hosted on a server. If this is already possible - then it's not obvious!

                • Use External user Account in the Copy Users Permissions

                  In the Copy User Permissions, I would love to be able to use an external account as source or target users. This would allow me to give an external contractors the same right as an existing external contractors.

                  Great product, I use it almost every day.

                                    • Set the metadata of most recent version of a file on past versions with deprecated values

                                      When copying files where one of the versions have metadata that has been deprecated, I would like to see a feature that would allow me to reset the metadata of past versions of a file to automatically match that of the most recent version.

                                        • possibility to change versions from major to minor

                                          With the Bulk Edit, or reporting, it would be great to have a feature do demote major versions to minor.

                                          It could be with the Export Selection to Excel feature. Allowing changes to the version number could be useful.
