Provide count for the number of items we select on Config Center - CTE and PROD.

When we log into CTE or PROD and go to customer business alias. Go under Translation section and navigate through Basic Translation, Codelist, Deferred Processing, Document Extraction, Envelopes, Global control numbers, Maps, Sequence Numbers, Status Messages, Typing. For Example -  if we select 5 maps, we need to get a count of 5 some where above the page. This will be helpful for the user to be sure that the count selected is in tact.

For Example - If we select 150 envelopes, it should show the count of 150 at the top of config center page, so user can be sure the selected count is in tact when we navigate the pages.

How will this idea be used?

As I presented in the above example, when we select 150 envelopes, if we get the count of 150 some where at the top of Config Center, it would be very useful to the user that the number of envelopes selected are in tact. This applies to all the Translation, Reporting sections in Config Center.

    Vikram - Perhaps we can have a short discussion on this item to help us better understand the need.  I will be leaving tomorrow for vacation but I will schedule a quick call for when I return so we can discuss.
