Enable setting default values on the "Restore Job" form

I have an enhancement request for the Domino Backup database. The "Restore Job" form should have a "profile", where you can set default values for (at least) certain fields.

These fields could benefit from having a default value of "TRUE" most of the time:

Disable replication (already implemented in the design of the form.)

Change Replica ID (questionable, but in certain cases it could be beneficial.)

Disable Agents (should always be "TRUE" since you restore the database(s) to a path that is in the Domino datapath)

Other fields might benefit from that option too.

I know you can make these changes by modifying the form using the Designer, but I don't like to "mess" with system databases design if it can be avoided for various reasons:

  1. You risk the changes are overwritten with next upgrade.

  2. You risk breaking your your backup/restore job if you mess with the standard design

  3. If you modify the standard system design, you'll have to take that into consideration before each upgrade.

And so on...
