I just voted for the Powershell script button. Great idea since it certainly seems to be the way MS wants us to work in the future.

I voted too. BTW when Exchange Server was introduced as the first Microsoft server application to utilise PowerShell it introduced the PowerShell preview window in MMC. This was because the MMC snap-ins only manipulated the Exchange Server through Exchange's PowerShell cmdlets. This was great as from this point on every manipulation of Exchange goes through a single interface (PowerShell) and, if using MMC, you can see exactly what it is doing - just what Steve asked for of SQL Server!!!

another vote for Powershell. Though the hyperlink wasn't totally obvious in the editorial. Perhaps edit it to read: Now if I only had a "Powershell script" button right next to it (click here to vote for it).....

That script button has been my little friend for years now.

It documents what I am doing, I can tweak it if I wish, and it is handy if it is an action that I may have to repeat again. I also voted "yes" for a Powershell Script" button. Great idea!

The script button is not new, it has been around in previous versions for years and everyone should have already familiarize themselves with it. The neat thing I like about 2012 SSMS that is not in previous versions is the ability now to see both the Registered Servers Window and the Object Explorer Window both docked on the left in SSMS at the same time. No more jumping through hoops to make this happen. Yeaaaaaa! This was always a pain tabbing back and forth or hitting F8 and Ctrl+Alt+G. This may sound trivial, but sometimes its the little things that can make your SQL life much more convenient.

I wish I had a little Script button for my real life -- oh wait, I think that is called "memory," something I used to have more of.

I think the PoSH button should be made available.

Since I noticed the Script button back in previous versions, I have begun using that button liberally myself. It just makes sense.

The Powershell button would be totally awesome. I clicked through to vote and it now says "voting has been closed on this item". What happened?

Now if I only had a "Powershell script" button right next to it.....

I could not agree more. PoSH is a technology Microsoft is offering up to help support all their major platforms. Getting rid of the mini-shell was a huge step, but it's time they made PoSH a first class citizen in SSMS. PoSH makes things so much easier to do when the task requires a blend of T-SQL and something else not T-SQL. If they implemented a script button I would predict a serious increase in adoption rates, and efficiency for DBAs willing to take the plunge.
