      Description

      This bugs covers two very closed issues

      • On list of listing page: The columns are taking too much space, at least description and comment should be on the same column (if not even name).
      • On the edit page: the purpose of Name, Description and Comment are not explained at all, being confusing even for power people that are using BFA often. We need to find a way to tell people what is the purpose and use of these fields. That they are supposed to put inside.

      Proposed solution:

      • Add Description and Comment to the Name column, with newlines and prefix "Description: <br>". This should make a better use of the screen real estate.
      • No idea regarding improvement for "edit screen", awaiting feedback.
