Can we please have a tickbox (ideally one that remembers your preference to be ticked or unticked) on the Save to Gallery pop up that would allow us to save a (timestamped?) copy of that workflow on a local drive (perhaps one that is preset in the user settings)?

I've recently been playing with the 'Encrypt Workflow' capability within the platform, and it's great, apart from the fact that it is not possible to edit an encrypted asset, meaning users will have to store an unecrypted version of the file.


It would be great if the 'Serial Numbers' could be extended to allow certain users to be able to not only run the workflow but also edit the workflow. 


Pretty simple one, but one that would be hugely valuable, preventing the need to maintain an unecrypted version of the workflow on your machine.



In the Result window, user can expand the Column Width but not the Row Height, and cannot Wrap the text.


It's a kind of necessary user friendly feature to view the entire text easily.


Sometimes, if text is too large in each field, then expanding the column width for all the fields and scrolling left/right is really annoying.

In many cases, I have several formulas in one formula tool. I'd like to be able to have all of these expanded whenever I select the formula tool that's in the workflow. Currently when I select a formula tool, I see "Screenshot Current". I'd like to have a setting available so that anytime I select this formula tool, I see something like "Screenshot Idea".


I would like to be able to connect to an AWS EMR resource.

And an AWS gov cloud endpoint.


It could be useful to keep track of changes to workflows by adding changelog notes to the Meta Info in workflow configuration


Of course the workflow file name could include a version history, but it would also be neat to have a field within the workflow itself.
