What is the proposed idea/solution?

Allow greater customisation of the Grid element in both interfaces and automations, in 3 ways: First, in the same way that field on an interface can have a 'friendly' display name, allow the same for grid columns (interface & automations). Second, allow the primary key field to be hidden (interfaces only, as this already exists in automations). Third, allow column order to be manually set (in interfaces a workaround is to create a view, but in automations there is no workaround, and column ordering is determined by when fields were added to the base table).

How does is solve the user problems?

Allows for greater customisation of grids, and aligns the grid element functionality more closely to that of other interface and automation elements. 

How was this validated?
