Hi Shawn,

Bob Settlage, cc’ed here, will be leading an effort under the new OnDemand 2.0 project to create simpler, more functional web applications.  I think your suggestions may be useful for his work, thus connecting you.

Imagine clicking on an an .m file and being asked to open in an editor, or launch in matlab. Or being able to specify cores, memory (just like the job launcher or interactive apps) at this point. Extrapolate out to other operations such as selecting a bunch of files, clicking "compress" and then being able to specify cores, memory.
