I'd like to request a column in the Library pane that shows whether a resource had been downloaded to the device I'm using. One might call it "Local," "This Device," or "Downloaded," thereby differentiating it from "Devices," which provides information about mobile installations. A checkmark or "Yes"/"No" in the column would be sufficient.

No, the filter facet on the left side does not meet this need. The functionality is quite different from a user's perspective.

In the beta release the "Devices" facet does include information about desktop / laptop installations, not just mobile ones

That's not what I'm talking about. Please read the fine print in my original post; I foresaw this response. I'm requesting a column. A facet is not a column, and it does not function like a column.

Sorry I had seen it but wanted to point out what was available today.

Apologies if that wasn't helpful.

It would be very helpful when selecting resources by Series (for example), in order to know how complete the Local set is.

It's also helpful for knowing at a glance--not a click and reload that may also disrupt whatever other work I'm doing, and which doesn't work while indexing--whether a particular resource has been downloaded or not.

I apologize myself. I should have been more patient and not assumed that you hadn't read my post carefully.
