Product Enhancement request

I use ERA daily, and on thing I am using extensively is the "Run Command" option. Specifically, I am using this with PowerShell.

Typing a multi-line PS script into the tiny "command to execute" box on the Run Command task, prefixed with "powershell" is really clunky, and I invariably have to compose the script in Notepad first. Here's an example:

$secpasswd = ConvertTo-SecureString 'abc123' -AsPlainText -Force
$cred = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ('xxx', $secpasswd)
Invoke-WebRequest 'http://xxx.co.uk/TeamViewer/SH.jpg' -OutFile 'C:\Windows\Temp\SH.jpg' -Credential $cred"

which I have to type into the task as:

powershell -Command "$secpasswd = ConvertTo-SecureString 'abc123' -AsPlainText -Force;$cred = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ('xxx', $secpasswd);Invoke-WebRequest 'http://xxx.co.uk/TeamViewer/SH.jpg' -OutFile 'C:\Windows\Temp\SH.jpg' -Credential $cred"

it would be great if there was a separate "Execute PowerShell" task, with a multi-line edit box, allowing much more complex PS scripts to be composed.

Many thanks
