Status: On Roadmap

Some summaries or dashboards from the NS6 web console, were easy to reuse into an excel/csv format using a simple copy/paste feature. heart yes

After migrating to Notification Server 7 (Symantec Management Platform 7), this feature is not any more available, we are damned to reuse bad JPG screenshots !!!  angry broken heart

Don't hope copy paste this list on Excel now !! Must use "Paint" :-(

From reports, there are no problam, we can use the "save as" Spreadsheet feature.

This is SO frustrating! We used to copy from collections, resource manager, etc. Basically it was anywhere data was presented in a table. Now we can only do it via reports. Is this something they did on purpose to force us to use their reports?

I couldn't agree more.  Very frustrating not having the ability to cut and paste from resource manager, reports and filters.

We have to build excel documents to send to managers with these reports and we used to just be able to copy and paste to the excel document. Now we have to save to a cvs file then copy out of that. Going to get tired of it fast.

We use the copy to clipboard feature in 6.

We copy large reports to a preformated excel spreadsheet from notepad.

In 7.1 we are forced to use an Excel CSV that corrupts the format of the data.

Is there a way we can get the copy to clipboard feature back?

So, still not implemented 4 years after this 'idea' was raised, still not in Altiris 7.5 SP1. 

Just adding my voice to the request - actually adding my voice to all three mentions I can see of this problem:
