Adjustable columns in HMC table view

Please consider individual configuration of table view of LPARs for each HMC user by
a) allow removal of columns without interest in
b) smaller column width (maybe shorter texts. In German "Partitions-ID" might be shortened by "ID")
c) other example: replace column for indicator lamp by a symbol in LPAR name column
d) option to save the configured table view and set table view as default

    As mentioned in earlier comment, features "allow removal of columns without interest in" , "option to save the configured table view and set table view as default" are already available. You can select/de-select the columns to be viewed and also save it as a preference to set as default view. Addressing optimizations to the column table view and dashboard is part of the strategy going forward.

    The COMMON Europe Advisory Council (CEAC) has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a MEDIUM priority requirement (b & c) that should be addressed.

    Background: The CEAC members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CEAC has a crucial role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual RFEs on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your RFE.

    To find out how CEAC help to shape the future of IBM i, see CEAC @ and the article "The Five Hottest IBM i RFEs Of The Quarter" at

    Features a and d can be done in the HMC already with the save user preferences option. Columns can be removed, added & table view can be set as default view using the save user preferences option. We will evaluate options b & c.
