Data Labels should default as the Field Name


I may be way off base here but I believe its a fairly common practice to use a naming convention for your data fields like "LoanNumber" or "BorrowerFullName" because it makes it easier to search for data fields when writing Beast Modes, etc.

What I'm wondering is why the field name doesn't default in the Data Label field so we can simply place our curser and hit the space bar to create "Loan Number" or "Borrower Full Name", as examples? I believe that Title case (Loan Number) looks better than coding naming practices (LoanNumber) but its laborious when you have to retype 20-30 column names on a data table.

Could that be an update to DOMO as a default or at least as a profile or card setting?

Thanks for the consideration!

    It can be so tedious having to retype out the entire field name when you only need to add a space. I think this is a GREAT idea!!

    I've noticed that this already occurs when Controls are added to a card. You just have to add two spaces instead of retype the whole name again. Why NOT add this same functionality to the Data Labels too?
