The customer would like the ability to create an "Actions" widget in their dashboard to showcase the action executed for a particular business unit. We created groups for these business units in Turbo based on customer tags but that scope is not supported in the "Actions" widget
Being able to showcase actions executed on the basis of a business group would allow for more friendly competition within departments to get a "better turbo score" and track their individual teams progress.

Remove requirement to set Automation level on every Volume policy
Currently, with VM policies, you can add or ignore every variable in the policy menu. By this i mean that i can have a policy blocking instance types, and i don't have to also select Manual or Automatic. I can leave that section blank and allow ot...
