[otrs] OTRS 1.2 Beta 1 notes/comments

Couple of notes / questions / suggestions so far:

1) The image mask on the FAQ button (from Admin interface) needs to be
worked on.

2) The word "end" in the customer interface needs to be capitalized like the
rest of the links.

3) Would it be possible to bake in an Admin preference that can limit the
statistics displayed for clarity?

3.5) When you click on a statistics graph, it displays the same graph in its
own window.  Is it possible to have mkStats.pl generate a normal and a large
graph, and then have the default action display the larger graph when
clicked?  Kind of like zooming in...

4) Reports.  Any chance reports development is for along enough to include?

1) I think it would help the customers if in the FAQ area, there was a
section for the admins to list the top 10 (for some such number) FAQs.  Then
if not listed, they could use the search function underneath that.

2)  How does one (as a technician) add a FAQ?  Is this only done via the
Admin interface?
