Suggestion: show other metadata properties

It would be great if we had an option to show other properties when comparing objects, for example modified date.

I just came across a situation where we have two different databases that the codebase works against, and when there are differences, it would be handy seeing which version was modified last. (Right now I fire up a query window against each database and SELECT modify_date FROM sys.procedures ...) As an added bonus some kind of visual cue showing which one is newer would be a nice to have.

I know this isn't the typical use case but I think it would be valuable for some.

    Thanks for your post.

    This currently isn't possible with SQL Compare 8 (as you know), but I agree that it would be a useful feature to have.

    I have therefore logged a feature request for it. Hopefully it will be considered for a future version.

    The feature tracking code for this is SC-2470.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
