Could Recent Operations menu also show queued paths & more entries?

Post by Jerry » 08 Feb 2017 18:13

I frequently move stuff around my various drives in multiple steps, backgrounded and queued, but often to just one or two target locations (that vary over time). Recent Operations is ideal and human error-free for carrying out these moves, but too often, I don't have the target location in the menu because 1) locations only appear there for completed operations, not for those in the background queue, and 2) the menu doesn't hold a lot of entries, unlike other XY location menus. So could the Recent Operations menu also show queued paths & more entries?

Recent Operations is fed from the Action Log. So it only has completed operations.

And you would not want to feed it from the Background Jobs queue as well?

Nope. It's "Recent", not "Upcoming" File Operations.

How about a Queued Operations menu, then?
