Collection Enhancements: Consider Voting Up


There are two things about Collections that I'd like to see enhanced. If they are bothering you too, please consider upvoting the idea posted here.

1. Need a way to find where all Collections are instantiated within an app.

    a. When you add a new column to a Collection, all instances must be updated or you get weird errors. 

    b. It can be difficult to find all instances of a Collection in a large app

    c. Need the same thing for Collections as View/Variables/Click Variable/Uses

2. Need a way to look at the entire column name in View/Collections

    a. The only way I've found to view a full column name in View/Collections/Click Collection, is to right click, Inspect and use Chrome dev tools to see what the column is named!

    b. Please let us expand the column names for heavens sake!
