Currently if I select a data element from the pool it is just copies to the text field surrounded with %%. If for some reason I change my data element, I need to find all rules where I used it manuall and change it. If the element would be linked to the rule, a change in the data element name would be applied to all rules. One additional gain would be to be able to see where a data element is actually used.

To be able to see where something is used would also be a good feature for events, conditions, exceptions and actions based on the suggestion here: Reuse events, conditions, exceptions in rules

In a way, this is similar to Automatically Update Names of Data Elements Used in DTM Rules , but I think they difference is, instead of (or in addition to) making it so if I change the name of a Data Element, it automatically updates anything referencing that data element, you're saying you want to also see "where is this data element referenced"? If so, count me in!

Yes, Would be glad if we know how many rules are linked to an Data Element. It is hard to find the Data Element usage as the same is completely manual for now. If I want to delete an Data Element, i should know what are the rules it is linked to so that i can be aware of the impact. Expecting this really quick!
