"Access Restricted" indicator on customize columns page
I'd like an "Access Restricted" indicator on the customize columns page. Probably in a column with a checkmark like the Required and Unique indicators. It would show whether or not the column has access restrictions configured. I could open the column to see or configure the particular restrictions.

I often use the "Restrict access right by role" feature to restrict access to columns. There's no way to see that a column has access restrictions configured without opening the column to view or edit. When I want to review the restricted columns on a table, I have to open every data column to check whether it has access restrictions configured. Especially on tables with large numbers of columns, this is a rather daunting task.

Just having an indicator in the list would help a lot.

Actually, the "Manage access for columns" feature works pretty well for doing this.

Nathan is right, "manage access for columns" is an adequate tool for doing that. But anyway a "flag" function would be great. Just like every e-mail client has. I hate testing my app and writing down which table, column, view or dashboard is allready working well. Why not "flag" it with different colours. Simple and effective.
