Pinpoint Management Pack Catalog

The Pinpoint Management Pack Catalog has been given a new home page. It looks very promising since it adds some good filters (Filter by Product and Filter by Company) and on top of it, a good sort option  (Sort by) as well.

I have tried the new page in order to search some MPs which were normally very hard to find in the previous versions of Pinpoint. And the good news is, these MPs are easily found now. The filters are really snappy and filters the dataset on the fly.

Some Tips & Tricks:

  1. I want to see the Microsoft MPs only with the most recent one on top
    Go to Filter by Product and select Operations Manager, go to Filter by Company and select Microsoft System Center.  Now all Microsoft MPs are shown with the most recent on top. So with a few mouse clicks one can check very easily whether a new or updated MP has been published!

  2. I want a different sorting
    Notice the prominent Sort By options at the top of the list of results. The default is to sort by Release Date but you can also sort based on Name or Rating.

Go check it out yourself and be surprised. Do not forget to update your favorites referring to the new Pinpoint homepage.
