Vagisha, if you prefer to have someone else do this, please assign to Kaipo.

When I downloaded a .skyp file from a Thermo test server I got the following error:

---------------------------
Skyline-daily
---------------------------
There was an error downloading the Skyline document specified in the skyp file: https://fortius-lcms-stage.app.labkey.host/_webdav/Testing/VandV/MM_MP09_QC/%40files/autoqc_prtc_nonfaims_template_2022-04-29_10-33-52.sky.zip.
The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized.
You may have to add fortius-lcms-stage.app.labkey.host as a Panorama server from the Tools > Options menu in Skyline.
---------------------------
OK Cancel
---------------------------

When I click OK, I am shown the Options form with the Panorama tab active. This form is not correctly parented, because it shows up in the Alt-Tab list and if I switch away and then activate Skyline by clicking the Task Bar, Skyline reactivates without the form showing but disabled so that it rings when I click on it. So, parenting should be fixed in this case.

To get what I want, I now need to click Edit List and then Add, and then I need to copy and paste the server URL into the URL field of the form. I just gave up reaching this last step during the demo.

I would prefer to just be shown the Panorama Server configuration form with the URL for the server pre-populated and just have to enter my credentials and click OK, and that would be enough to open the file.

I will not be able to get to this until after May Institute, so I am assigning this to Kaipo. Thanks, Kaipo.

This is totally not urgent. It would be nice to see fixed in 22.1, but that is likely July at this point.
