Text/Notes/Description column for most QMC objects

Text/Notes/Description column for most QMC objects

All of the main objects in the QMC should have notes column, to allow the amdinistrators to list some important things about each object.

Apps, Streams, Extensions, Tasks, etc

A common problem we face is when more than one person wants to be the business owner for a stream, and we have no way to document that in the QMC.  For example if a business owner wants an assistant to be delegated as also being owner for the stream. No way to put a note that says for this stream be sure to do abc before 123.  

Please consider adding a TEXT column for the main objects, similar to the description column for Security rules.

Security rules are a prime example of the usefulness of this. The description column allows for notes about each rule, that can be very helpful. This allows some meta data to be entered, and this is greatly needed on other objects as well.

I agree with the above comment. For workstreams especially, a text column would be useful for co-owners or special instructions about access ect.
