Enable "Edit Schedule" for completed Data Warehouse requests

Provide a way to edit and repurpose a completed DW request instead of duplicating it.

Sometimes, a "completed" Data warehouse request can be repurposed to extract the same data again. When such requirements arise, the current design does not allow us to "edit" a completed data warehouse request providing a quick way to run them for a different date range, instead it requires one to duplicate the DW request and create a new one out of it.

To me, this results in:

1. Duplication of DW requests whenever similar "one time" extraction needs arise.

2. Increases the list of dormant "completed DW requests", thus clustering the DW request queue.

3. Time & effort is spent in recreating the same request again - this can be avoided.

Provide edit feature to improve user experience. Duplication can be used where necessary.

If its on a schedule, you can edit the schedule of the next scheduled job of that instance from the Request Manager.

Agreed, that is doable and I use it. The focus here is on "completed" DW request.

Anyone from Adobe, can you confirm if this idea is been considered, assessed for development?

Also have the same issue. Struggling to understand why you can't just edit the underlying setup, this is a pretty basic functionality of report building. Plus I can see that this has been requested since 2011 at least so very poor experience from Adobe not to address it.
