      Description

      It can be difficult to keep an overview of how people are alerted on an action, because you can't see the media type in the first place. Editing operations is tricky for operations with the same receiver but different media.

      Please find a proof-of-concept patch attached, working around this situation.

      --------------

      SCENARIO:

      On a given action we're alerting the following user groups:

      • Nosy people via e-mail
      • GNU/Linux admins via jabber and SMS

      The GNU/Linux admins also have e-mail defined, but we don't want to use it here.

      --------------

      CURRENT SITUATION:

      After you defined those operations, the overview of actions gives you the following information in the Operations column:

      Send message to user group: Nosy people
      Send message to user groups: GNU/Linux admins
      Send message to user groups: GNU/Linux admins

      If you edit the action, you'll have to guess which of the GNU/Linux admins operation is which, because they are labeled in the same way. That can be tricky.

      If somebody asks you, whether the GNU/Linux admins will receive SMS', you'll have to the following:

      • Edit the action
      • Switch to the Operations tab
      • Click your way through all operations with GNU/Linux admins as receiver, which is a also bit error prone

      --------------

      DESIRED SITUATION:

      Show the media type along with the receiver. Please see the screenshots attached for how it should look in editing and on the list.

      If somebody asks you now, all you have to do is look at the list.
