- its "Favorite Tags" mechanism
- its availability also as a "Portable Zip Package" with "No installation required"
Currently, when "Accept receiving studies" is enabled and new data begins to arrive, a "modal" dialog box pops up in order to inform the user and to track the progress of the data transfer, but this is very disruptive to the user's productivity.
The user cannot continue with his/her current work on the currently-displayed image, and does not have much of a choice but to wait until all of the data finishes arriving. When a large study is being transferred, the disruption is even more annoying -- especially if the Internet connection is slow -- because this modal dialog box can pop up repeatedly, for every single slice/instance!
It would be a tremendous improvement if all of these notifications could happen asynchronously, in their own pane. For comparison, you might want to look at the way the ClearCanvas DicomViewer handles this issue, with a Tools | Activity Monitor living asynchronously in an entirely separate TAB, which is not even necessarily shown (unless the user chooses to view it). BTW: the ClearCanvas "Activity Monitor" also tracks the status of data SENT, not just received, as well as of other operations.
BTW, in the screenshot shown above, one can also see the minor GUI bug that I reported in this thread, whereby the "Patient Information," "All Tags," and "Favorite Tags" tab-labels at the bottom of the "DICOM Tags" pane are hidden, and not revealed until one hovers over them with the mouse or resizes the programs window.
