One key feature that is missing from Remote Tasks section is Database Optimization... I manage several websites and it would be really nice to be able to open remote tasks, and run a database optimization from within there instead of having to log into the backend of each site and run it from there... Any chance that feature could be added to the functions in the remote tasks tab??
I have been working hard in 2.0 development and didn't make any progress on this.
2.0 version will allow us to launch more remote tasks to all our remote websites (current version only allows launching, for instance, a file integrity task to a website each time) and I plan to add more tasks in a future.
