Today I have some workflows which have certain steps that occur after files are output. I have these set up inside of Tool Containers so that I can easily enable/disable them as I am working if I do not want to produce output for this particular run. However, sometimes if I need to troubleshoot on a workflow that I haven't worked on for awhile, I can neglect to disable these, which can cause errors. This is usually harmless, but annoying.
Having two more options on Tool Containers could really help to improve this!
Disable When Browse Tools Disabled would be useful for any analysis/debugging steps that I only want to run when I am browsing to find data, but should not run otherwise.
Disable When Output Disabled would be really useful to ensure that these tools are turned off alongside the "Disable all tools that write output" option in Workflow-Configuration-Runtime.
This would save me a lot of unnecessary error messages and moments of panic, and would make these types of workflows easier for other users to debug without extensive notes.
