Pref to control the display name cache of entities

When an entity record is presented to you in places like the Global Search or when typing into an entity link field, what you see is called the "Display Name Cache" for that entity. An example would be if you started typing in a Shot name into the Sequence.shots field like so:

Screen_Shot_2015-05-06_at_2.20.09_PM.jpg

You see the Shot name, its status, and the Project to which it belongs. We've heard different use cases from clients where they would like to change the information displayed there, as there is often other helpful contextual information stored on the record. Perhaps you'd rather see "Shot name, status - Description" so it's easier to choose the correct Shot.

Would this sort of feature be helpful to you? If so click "Me Too!" and be sure to leave your thoughts and use cases in the comments.

    Particularly if we could see the sequence for a given shot (as another example).

    If its possible to use field names to configure what you want to see here.

    It would be great to get the full hierarchical info on each link; 

    eg episode - sequence - shot, rather than just the shot.

    Ability to choose the fields that are shown there would be a nice addition. Especially with fields pulled from linked entities through multiple levels of hierarchy.

    I am using Shotgun to track some GIS geometry info at the moment (not the usual use case), and I need to see some additional properties when linking sub-assets to make sure I link the right stuff. This feature would be very helpful.

    I'd suggest having the option in 'Configure Field' where we can add related fields to show along with the Entity name. That way it's nice and flexible whatever your pipeline.
