Unconfigured clients are automatically members of the group "Default". Going to Group management/Clients this association is not obvious. Known clients are presented in the drop-down menu but no group association is visible.
Therefore I propose to change the way new clients are displayed at Group management/Clients. Remove the drop-down menu (but keep the possibility to add manually configured clients/subnets) but add the clients to the "List of configured clients" (title has to be changed).
As I understand it from looking at the code, this table can only show already added clients.
So you propose to add new clients immediately to the client table (with default group)?
This would look strange for me. Assume I have hundreds of clients (I have a large number of IoT devices). This would cause a list with over 10 pages even when I only want to configure two clients and leave all the rest in the default group. I don't think it would enhance usability.
I was not thinking about having 100 clients... might be looking strange, but now you have a long long long drop down menu. Must be looking also strange
Might be a trade-off for large environments but would make things clearer to new users. Right now the default association is not visible anywhere.
Also it would be consistent with how adlists and domains are treated. If you add them (or even by default as pihole comes with 4 default adlists) they are automatically assigned to default - and the association is visible.
