How can we improve SQL Backup?

Add FULLIFREQUIRED and COMPRESSION LEVEL 0 to GUI.

Backup options should be available in the GUI when setting up jobs. For TDE database backups we need to use compression level 0. FULLIFREQUIRED is also a good option to use so that new databases automatically get backed up for wildcard transaction log backup jobs. Having to manually edit the job step to enable these options is an unwanted additional configuration step.

        Here we are nearly 5 years later and FULLIFREQUIRED is still not in the GUI.

        Come on folks, it's a great option and it should be supported in the GUI.
