Enable selection display or hide data item in table view(Available Assets list)

Problem statement/pain point:

Table view = Available asset list in main panel, we can see “NAME”, “OWNER”, “TAGS”, “TYPE”, “DATE ADDED” as items in this asset list. We can not select which items should be shown or hidden in table view.

For example, “NAME” is mandatory item, and “TAGS” is important in this customer usecase, many Tags added to asset, then ”TAGS” column should be more wide to display all added tags. ”OWNER” and “TYPE” are not important and want to de-select to show in my asset list in this case.

Also from the perspective of extensibility, in future other items will be shown and many items shown in this table view, table view becomes complicated, we want to hide less important information to increase visibility.

Proposed solution:

Enable selection display data item in table view(Available Assets list)


Users can select item shown and customize table view for their own purpose

# of users impacted and how often are they impacted:

For this instance, from several to ten users, and always impacted in now, but this use case is trial, impacted user will be growth in near future.

Also this function will be impact to decision to renew or stop Watson Knowledge Catalog Standard plan which is purchased in now.
