It would be useful to have a display name for local files that would allow to use shorter names, just like we have for web links. This would especially be useful for versions, which often have long naming conventions that are not necessary in the scope of Shotgun where the project and shot information is already displayed in the page. It would also allow to hide the extension, which is always the same in an automated version created pipeline. Like web links, clicking on the display name would open the file.
In our case, we would propably use the word 'play' for all versions, since the version name is already displayed and is used to access the detail page of that version.
