It would be helpful if some of the flex fields could be populated from the UI. There are situations where it would be helpful for information to be caputured that could be searched and filtered on. For example with the recent possible exemption extensions, it would be helpful to be able to enter something on the supplier part so it is known the part has already been reviewed, even though the status may be 'Fail', as opposed to those parts that still need to be reviewed, possibly for another reason. It would be nice to include other exceptions, that may not be covered by an exemption, but can be search and filtered on.
If a few of the flex fields on each of the objects had this option, it would be very helpful.
