Make farm name visible when configuring farm

When I'm configuring a farm, the farm's name shows in the General tab in Farm Settings. If you click into configuring a role, or anything else, the farm name doesn't show. It's very easy to edit the wrong farm. I often have two open, so I can refer to one while changing the other.

Could you add the farm name somewhere near the top?

    Hi Jo,

    Would this work (see attachments)?

    In one attachment the new button is selected, which brings up the farm settings page, and in the other it isn't.

    Hi Thomas,

    That would do nicely!

    Another option would be to have the name in the bottom bar. That would put it next to the save button, and also give it more room. I've attached a mockup.

    I'd be happy with either place, and I'm sure your UI designers will have an opinion too.

    Thanks for your feedback, Jo!

    We used to have some stuff at the bottom of the Farm Designer (in the old UI), but in practice no one ever really saw those things, which is why our designers would prefer to move this to the top : )

    Since you mentioned the proposed mockups would work for you, we'll go ahead and implement that. I don't know exactly when it'll ship, but I'm sure you'll notice when it does!

    Yep, sounds great!
    I know what you mean about things at the bottom.
    Thanks very much for your support.
