Execution Notifications

The feature is particularly useful in situations when developers need to execute long-running queries and switch to other windows within SSMS or even to other applications.

You can enable notifications and change settings on the Notifications tab of the Options menu. You can also set a query execution time limit to get notified about queries that exceed it. By default, notifications are on and notification duration time is 7 seconds.

The notification contains the following information:
The name of the document
The duration of a query
–  Execution status:
       – Query completed with errors.
       – Query executed successfully.
       – Query canceled.

Note, that if a query is running longer than 23:59:59 hours, days are added to the time in the Notification.

You can close the notification window by clicking the cross button in the upper-right corner. If you click the notification window – the SQL document will open.

Transaction Reminder

Envision quite a common situation when you open a transaction, run some statements and then due to some reasons forget to commit it. Transaction Reminder feature of SQL Complete is called to solve that problem. With this feature enabled whenever there are open transactions during the query execution, a reminder will pop-up informing you about the number of uncommitted transactions.

By default, notifications are on. To disable notifications uncheck Notify if execution contains open transactions on the Notifications tab of the Options menu.

The notification alerts users that a transaction has not been yet completed if you execute a script by clicking F5 in SSMS.

The Transaction Reminder window contains the following information: a document name and a number of open transactions.
