Requesting a new deployment in UCD 7 requires too many steps

We are upgrading from UCD 6.2 to 7.1. We are getting used to the new interface but there are a couple of changes that we find hinder our ability to use the interface. This bug is for the request for a deployment.

Requesting a deployment now takes one through 5 separate screens instead of the one screen that UCD6 has. It is so much more efficient to have just the one place to fill in everything than to go through 5 steps. Especially since most of the steps are often not needed: verify properties is not needed if there are no properties, schedule deployment isn't needed by us for any manual deployment, and then there is the final verification step which lets you see everything, adding one more step which wasn't needed in UCD 6.2.

We often do multiple manual deployments in a day and going through all of these screens increases the time and frustration needed to do deployments.

I'm not sure why you made this change, but please find a more efficient way to do what you intended.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    I'd also like to see the request process selection on the left. Especially since it's intuitive to want to use the arrow that is on the right for starting the deployment.
