Feature suggestions for rule overview   11 August 2017, 19:00

I work a lot with groups in BWM, e.g. a group with the IPs of a classroom or a group with MACs of staff. For each entry I also enter a comment to make it easier identify the user behind this entry. My rules are usually also tracked per-MAC or per-IP.
But in the rules-overview, if I expand one rule I only see the MAC or IP of all users included. It would help a lot if I could also see the comment I put for this entry in the group, so I immediately see which user it is. Remembering MAC addresses of users is quite hard... wink

Second is about sorting the single entries within one rule. It would help if they could be sorted manually (I usually want them ascending in the source) to find a specific entry faster.

And last is about the Live Usage Monitor.
I sometimes try to monitor a specific stream while refreshing every 2 seconds. But if I highlight a stream, it will always be the e.g. first stream highlighted. The highlighting does not follow the stream if it changes position in the list.

Maybe these suggestions seem useful for you too.
Thanks!

Thank you for the useful feedback. We've added both: showing comments from groups in the main view and real-time monitor, as well as the highlight now follows the stream when it moves around.

You can download the new build here.

Amazing, thanks!! I tested it and it works great, makes it quite easy to identify a (mis-)user smile

One more thing is the sorting within a rule, especially when using an IP-range as in the picture. It would help if they were also sorted like
192.168.0.1
192.168.0.3
192.168.0.100
192.168.1.39
etc.

Do you mean the default sort order as they are shown in the main view?

If so, please download the updated build - we've made it sorted by IP/MAC address.
