    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to submit this idea for enhancement, including the detail of the discussions which you have already been having with our development and product management team. We agree that this enhancement idea would improve the product and we will seek to put this into product plans when we can justify from the business perspective. Whilst this means that a delivery timeframe cannot yet be committed, to acknowledge the positive outlook, we are placing the RFE into the Planned for Future Release status.
