Provide an option to disable owner name for folders with Connections Desktop Plugin

Currently, when using the Connections Desktop Plugin, every folder displays the folder name and the owner name (except if you are the owner) in the format "FOLDER NAME - OWNER NAME".


Please provide an option in the Desktop Plugin to disable owner names completely, so that only the folder names are visible.


In the provided screenshot the first folder is named "Test-Admin - Admin Connect" (folder name and owner name) while the second folder is named "Test-Robert" (folder name only).

The first folder was created by the user "Admin Connect" while the second folder was created by me and I do not see the owner name therefore.

    Any more concrete plans when this change will be coming? Status for this idea is on planning to implement already since quite long time, but so far it is still not possible to remove the creator's name.

    Users are requesting this quite often as they do not want their name to appear next to the folder name all time.

    Also the value is not really seen for that feature? It would be enough to see the creator of the folder in the properties.
