Stage Names - Alternate Label Text
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.

A great idea much overdue....

A tedious work around which would need to be done to required fields at each view they appear....
And by no means is this the ultimate solution.
_______________________________
#frm_541972 > section > table > thead > tr > th:nth-child(2) > a{
visibility: hidden;
position: relative;
}
#frm_541972 > section > table > thead > tr > th:nth-child(2) > a:after{
visibility: visible;
position: absolute;
content:"Different Name";
top:0;
left:0;
}
__________________________
Child(2) in this case refers to the 2nd field name in the view, where "Action" is Child(1)
The #frm_541972 is the field ColumnId()

Not ideal but it might get you out of a jam...
I haven't tested on multiple devices and I did notice the wrapping is chaotic...I threw this together very quickly

sorry...
add this to the dbstyles.css file, if you have one...
If not, you can create one as per here:
