Navigation: Alternate display name for element
Please allow for having an Attribute tagged as a Display Name for the entire element that would be shown in dialogs like the Switch Asset instead of the Element Name.
It is reasonable if this had to be indexed to be usable.
We are aware of the tooltip which helps but its only sometimes useful and does not seem to be sorted alphabetically when the names are identical.
We have identical element names at the lowest element level with the parent path having more unique name (this is to support creating processbook displays from the parent and being able to refer to A,B,C in a relative way if they were fully unique this is not possible.). The Switch Asset is basically unusable if there are too many like this.
Alternately, allow showing 2 or more levels of the hierarchy so that more context can be seen. The full path is usually too long for that to be useful so a partial path would be nicer.

Totally agree with the assessment that Switch Asset is unusable when elements are non-unique.
Regardless of uniqueness, Switch Asset is completely unusable when scaling up. We have thousands of related assets. User should not have to search this way when the related asset is under the same parent. I like suggestions above, with the related elements sorted by distance from related asset on the tree. I also wonder why the left hand "Asset" panel cannot be used for navigation when not in build? Would simplify the entire thing.
