VisualCron seems to operate like an efficient machine when it comes to improvements and enhancements and new features. I always appreciate the quick response I get when bringing up an issue or coming up with suggestions. I've mentioned before that it would be great to see a move away from SQLCE and XML configuration files. VisualCron support was lightning quick starting a response to this suggestion by allowing configuration of the location of log data, so I'm sure a move to persist everything to any version of SQL Server is close.

I would like for VisualCron to expand audit log to show who changed job variables that are initialized per job run. Add additional security to control visibility and/or modification of jobs to different roles or persons. This would allow the shared use of a common server while avoiding accidental changes to jobs by persons who shouldn't be able to maintain them.

There are some conditions in the mail trigger, but you can only use them as an "AND" condition, not as an "OR" condition. This is an improvement that could be useful. For example, some people put "invoice" in the subject and others put "invoice" in the body. If I want to make a trigger for everybody whose sending invoices, I have to make two jobs for this now.

The error timeout and info could be better. When making web request calls, it will time out sometimes and we won't get any useful info out of the error response.
