Is there a way to make RackTables display the* Visible label* on the object
instead of the *Common name*? *Common names* cannot be reused and it would
be helpful to have different objects have the same names for different
RackSpaces. You can do for *Visible labels,* though, and it would be helpful
that this  would display on the object when it is placed in a certain
RackSpace than the* Common name*.

The reason is we are using the RackSpaces for certain rooms that are around
our business and some Patch Panels (object) have the same name as each other
(Panel 1, Panel 2, ETC) but are located in different rooms. Rack Tables will
not allow the objects to be named the same, which is fine, but it displays
the Common name on the object which are different for each RackSpace. Since
the Visible Labels can be used with the same name for the Patch Panel, we
wanted to have them display on the object and not the Common name. Is there
a way to do this?
