For embedded forms/tables with database relations the relations widget should allow some configurable options:

  • display embedded widget in table or form mode
  • Configurable "title" of the embedded widget: currently, the relation name is displayed. It should be allowed to overwrite this with a configurable title. The relation name is not always suitable and understandable by end users.

When displaying the embedded widget in form mode, the first record should be automatically selected - not requiring the user to click and select the first record.

I have also a enhancement for the embedded form:
  • Activate copy to clipboard when selecting rows (or all rows) > now the users need to open child attribute table, filter rows, select them and then copy to clipboard

@Andreas: about your second point, you can use "technical name" as ID and "understandable name" as Name when creating the relation.
