Inform the user once addotional storage has become available
At this moment in time (v6.9.3) it is not evident to a user/client when addotional storage has been successfully added and been made availabe on the NAS. They have to login to the console and check the System/Overview page until such times as the new storage appears.
May I respectfully suggest that the system is changed such that an email message is sent out (similar to disc fails, warnings etc) to notify the relevant person(s) that the new storage is available?
When you (or the client) are no longer on-site and have left a job running, the wonderful feeling of getting your phone to 'peep' and a little message appears saying "Congratulations, you now have 20TB additional storage on your Netgear ReadyNAS nnn' or some other suitable message!
If you are adding multiple discs (one after the other) you get suitable messages advising you (effectively) that you can swap out the next disc.
Thankyou for taking the time to read and consider this thought.
