drop down box for custom properties under node management

I'd like to see a drop down box to see what is available when filling out custom properties under the node management on NPM 9.1.

If you mess up on case or anything when completing the custom properties manually - it can mess up your node grouping and other fields.

I second this request.
Since we use custom properties to group devices using the Ajax node view, any typos, leading or lagging spaces or uppercase/lowercase differences results in new groups showing up in this view.

Also create a limitation that only allows the user to select from an existing custom property when adding or editing nodes.

+1 Agreed that drop down would be nice.

Also create a limitation that only allows the user to select from an existing custom property when adding or editing nodes.

This would have to be done correctly because what if you really did have to add a "new" value to the custom property. Maybe making it so that web edits can not add "new" values, but to do so you would need to go to System Custom Property Application to add it for the first time. I think its good just need to take a few things into consideration.

Not included in 9.1 SP 5 ?

Any projected ETA?

We don't put features in service packs, and this is feature.  That feature is not in 9.5.  We will consider it for a future release.

Re: drop down box for custom properties under node management

Consider it for future relase?  This should have been standard in the original produsct...  Also I have some true/false custom properties and was amazed (in a bad way) to find that I didn't have a check box.  I have to actually type "True" or "False" in there.  Seriously?

Little things like this during the eval make me feel less at ease recomending this product for purchase.
