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

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.

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.

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
