Accept sent studies vs Local Database

There any many feature request all over this forum, but this one would be in my opinion pretty easy to implement yet really useful. Currently Radiant is able to display received studies (sent by 2nd party), but not to store them using Local Database.
Although I'm aware it would work only with Radiant on, as there are no "Radiant service" currently, and would probably support only one, default database, it sounds really useful for me, and pretty easy for You.
Please consider implementing

If a PACS node is configured, RadiAnt will store studies received from it in the local default database. Of course, RadiAnt process has to be running.
Even if the studies are accepted directly in the viewer window, they are still stored in the DB.

Oh, so the button in "Query/retrieve" window DOES apply for C-STORE SCP scenario.
As it's so "far" in the menus I haven't even though it could just work.
Thank You!

Is there a way to merge two databases? Preferably by a command line command?

Following scenario:
I have two rooms in our office, each with one computer.
Patient comes in and the CD goes to me, not to the front desk, I open it with radiant / add it to database.
After I see the patient, another patient will be waiting in the other room, prepared by the nurse.

But I don't know into which room the patient goes the next time, so I would like to merge the two databases at the start of each day, so I can also find the data from the other room if the patient comes back in again. It doesn't have to work on the same day. This leads to data duplicity, but is also a kind of backup.

Can I, for instance import, the DICOM data from a shared network folder using command line, automatically skipping files that are already contained in the database?

I don't want a PACS solution and uploading the CDs to pacs and then redownloading them from PACS, local database is simple enough.

Well, you could store the studies on network shares and import them to both databases as links. This way the data will not be duplicated, you only have to have both computer running to access the studies.
