What do you want from a column in a backlog?  A backlog is a list of issues to be prioritised and then drawn into a sprint, or a list of stuff that needs doing (Which, once you've started to look at it, by definition, isn't backlog any more)

Perhaps they are looking for useful information to help them prioritize items like story points or business value.

I am also wanting to know how to do this.  I need it to help prioritize / categorize the tasks in the backlog.

I would love to see which issues are in which state of the workflow. It would be awesome to see if something is in progress (rolled over from the previous sprint) and if something is blocked. 

If you're using Kanban backlogs, you can put multiple status into it.

I would love to see this added as well. Adding custom fields makes the rows too tall, and you can't see as many issues per page.

Same here. I would like te see the status of an issue. 

I would like to see status too.  Due to using the back log to prioritize, I want to make sure the top items are being worked on.  Currently I have to flip back and forth.

I want my account managers and implementation specialists to have one simple, clear view of cases of interest. This one simple view should answer all their important questions:

1)  See/identify the cases they have reported, or cases where they are the case owner. Today they only see the current assignee.

2) Our process/project has a step that is called "ready to develop" (basically requirements done). It is really important that case owners and persons of interest knows that they have work to do before our scrum team has all the info they need to actually develop.

3) We use a field called "Release notes", to summarize the business value of a case. Release notes are then send to our customers. Case owner is responsible to provide release notes according to our routine. As a product owner, I'm responsible to make sure all case owners provide good release notes. Me and product owners have no way to get a good view of the release notes.

4) Where in the process is the case I'm interested in?
