Assign ownership to a device



When I am browsing sensors or devices in a list, there are fields that I don't need, like location or favorite... but there is a field that would be VERY useful to me... ownership. (a quick way to know who is responsible when the device goes down). Tags and comments seem to only show if you specifically search by them... is there a way to edit the tables so this data would show all the time, by default? Thanks!
