One of the things we try to do in SQL Server Management is to allow you to work in whatever way is suited best for your situation and the way you do your job. Some people like to work with graphical tools, since everything you can do with the product is “discoverable” from the interface, and others like to work with commands and scripts once they’ve learned the language.
Although we have different people working on the commands-side of the organization than myself (simply because of the amount of work involved) we do talk, and have requirements that we share with each other. Up to now, most everything you can do in one tool you can do in the other. There are some holes, however, and we work each release on making sure that you can do any task in both.
Sometimes things just aren’t suited to one way or another, so we put that work behind bug fixes, enhancements and so on. But as time goes on, with each passing release or service pack, you’ll see those menu items pop up.
Are there particular items you would like to see on the graphical menu that you don’t? Have you right-clicked some object, expecting to be able to do something with it, and found very little there in the “actions” menu?
