Ability to Change Display Name for Standard Report Prompts

Sometimes, the display names on report prompts are confusing to the end-user. For example, on a Task Report, a prompt for "task name" just says "name" -- we need to be able to update this to make it more clear.


We cannot do this by rewriting the prompt as a custom prompt, because in doing so we lose to ability to allow the user to change the condition of that prompt. Plus, that would be a cumbersome process just to change the display name.

I have to second this recommendation!! Some of the prompts with a basic 'name' are confusing for Report Users.... without the ability to customize labels, we cripple and hinder the user experience thus undermining the efficacy of the report built to serve those very users.

Absolutely agree! We have a custom field that is labeled the same (one for issues & one for projects). I want to be able to use both of them as report prompts but our end users are not able to easily distinguish the two, so to them it appears as if it is the same prompt twice. Being able to change the labels would be extremely helpful since many admin choose shortened naming conventions for their fields.

Any movement on this? I would love to see it. As of right now, report prompts are not useful if the user can't tell the difference between the filters they're setting.
