Associating a friendly name for computer objects in SCCM 2007

We are running SCCM 2007 and I would like to know if there is a way to add a friendly name to computer objects within our collections. For instance associate a user name with the computer object?

Thanks in advance

You can create or use reports to show computers and the users of them.
But i think that's no option for you as you have to change the view.

If my customers have such requirements i usually suggest to develop (sccm sdk) a tool which offers the views you need and can deploy e.g. software, too.
Means: Its possible with customizing
No, but for which reason? Maybe there's another option.

We would just like to have a user associated with the computer name, basically for ease of management and organization. It would be much easier if we didn't have to look at a spreadsheet to see what computer has been assigned to a user, and then have to go in and find that machine name in our collections.
Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

you can also advertise software to users!

Thank you for the tip, however I am aware of that. It would just be easier if I could associate a user with the machine, I hate to say this but, kind of like LANDesk.

If I could just add the username collumn to the collection then that would take care of it.

Thanks for your replies.

Although this does not resolve my issue, this is a good point in the direction I need to go to accomplish.

Thanks for the help.
