QAC Feature Request: Deployment Log/Log Creation with custom fields (configuration management capab)

In our organization we use QA Complete to manage our defects and feature requests, and we have external and internal parties who deploy various features to various environments.

It would be enormously helpful to be able to use QA Complete to track these deployment activities on the Defect level by enabling the inclusion of a log with entries.

See Example below - While there is a history in QA Complete and even custom fields, the fields are not dynamic and there is no place to maintain a log that I can see.  

My request would be to allow for either a log creation or the ability to have fields which are dependent on each other or even dynamic - i.e. Deployed to Env xxx on YYY date and intended for zzz release --- OR Check In date - targeted for release xxx -- in environment yyy 

See example below of something we started doing to track our deployments (mind you I know there are separate full on configuration management solutions/web applications -- but it would be great if QA Complete had some of these capabilities... -Thank you! - Erik Hendin / Quality Manager @ 32BJ Benefit Funds...

Note - I tried using the "LISTS" feature to achieve this but there does not seem to be any option to create custom fields

I looked here(link below) and it states that they can be created via "Requirements" custom fields - however when I do that, there is no way for me to access said fields in my custom list... (this is something I may file a SB Case for... )
