Description

WordPress multisite's network user list displays sites per user but does not offer a column with the user's role on each one. It would be helpful to add a column to the right of 'Sites' named 'Role' with their role on each one. Network administrators would appreciate this enhancement, to show users' roles at-a-glance and verify they were set appropriately.

Currently the workflow is to open each individual sites' settings and click on the Users tab. This is cumbersome if you just need to verify role levels.

It would be helpful to see the same information in each users' profile (a list of sites associated with the user, and their role on the site).

Great idea @anseltaft , however each site in the Sites column might wrap around in the column (as well as the action links). So displaying the roles in an additional column would not line up correctly with the sites.

E.g.

www.domain1.dev                Editor
www.myextremelylongwrap        Administrator
pingdomainname.com             Editor
www.domain2.dev

An alternative could be to put the roles in parenthesis next to the site, but again, adding roles might mean more wrapping in the column making it look even messier than it is currently.

E.g.

www.myextremelylongwrap
pingdomainname.com (Ed
itor) View | Edit

I like this idea, but needs some UX consideration.

Good point on the wrapping and your approach would work fine from where I'm standing. Cheers
