In forms, as we know, you can choose a column and re name it as an Alternate Label Text. It would be great if you could do this at the Column level too. With the way we set up Summary Columns and Look-up Columns is this: Say you've got Leads table and Customer table... The customer "First Name" is a look-up from Customer Table in Leads - we label it as Customer_First Name in the Leads table. At a glance, we can see where the column is coming from. On forms, this is ok because we can change the Alternate Label Text, but if you're doing a search query view, you need to show the Customer_First Name as a label.

Absolutely needed, especially in a multi-lingual environment. +1 from me.

This needs more legs... We need to be able to use the Form displayed name in View's Column Header

Any timeline for implementing this idea? I think there are about 3 or 4 different references in Ideas Exchange referencing this as far back as this one 9yrs ago. Seems to be a recurring theme since this one 9yrs ago.
