One way to push the idea forward is to add it to the IdeaPond.
I do understand the issue here as well. As a general security rule, the harder you make things, the more likely that the systems will be bypassed and password stored in the clear (on a post-it under a keyboard or on a share drive in a Word doc). The flip side of that for us is that if we don’t follow these “rules”, many companies will simply not do business with us. This generally means Fortune 500 companies and government institutions. We’ve been discussing this internally as well but adding it to the IdeaPond can help boost the case.

I fully understand where you are coming from - but having said that, there are so many other tools that allow export/imports (FileZilla for example).
Because we can’t export and share toad passwords directly, we have to keep them in clear text in excel, and lock that in our Password Vault Sw… It would be so much easier if you could add a “save for all users” feature (maybe even linked with a single master password).
Anyways, maybe you could bring it up for discussion for one of the next builds.
In the meanwhile, w’ll be working around this issue with 3rd party tools ( /products/toad-for-oracle/f/10/t/11081 ) but I’d much rather have Toad do that out-of-the-box
