SSMS Add-in for Analysis Services

A nice new little add-in available for SSMS on Codeplex.  It helps with repetitive tasks involved with SSAS such as processing and deployment.  As the site says, the goal for the Analysis Services Helper is to fill in gaps in the toolset inside SSMS, and decrease time spent on administrative or repetitive tasks.

SSMS currently only offers the menu option to do a process full or process default on the cube, while this add-in will let you process multiple dimensions or cubes and set individual processing options with a few clicks, generating the XMLA script.

Hopefully the author will continue to add new features.
