Description

Hello,

I'm using mostly the cloud view for the provisioning (changing capacity and/or networks), but as it lacks some features (#3414) I need to switch to a user-like view to make snapshots, which is the much used actions of the list in #3414.

Today, I need 4 steps in 5 clicks to switch between views:

  1. open my settings
  2. either select the view setting in cloud view, or the conf tab in user view
  3. click on the view list and select the wanted view
  4. click on update

This loose the VM selection, so when I want to make a snapshot from the cloud view, I need extra steps:

  1. click on Virtual resources
  2. click on Virtual machines
  3. find the appropriate VM and open it
  4. select the snapshot tab
  5. click Take a snapshot
  6. enter a descriptive information
  7. validate

I think switching between views cloud be a 2 steps:

  1. click on my settings button, which display a list of options
    1. configuration to open my settings like today
    2. switch to view 1
    3. switch to view 2
    4. ...
  2. select the view I want

The view list should make evident which view is the current one, and makes it disabled for selection.

It could be awesome if switching between views preserve the current selection, when I'm in the VM in cloud view, switching to user view automatically select this VM, this would reduce the extra steps I need to make a snapshot to its essential.

Regards.
