View tag names in repository browser

Is it possible to display the actual tag name checked out instead of "HEAD" in the repository browser? I understand that when I am on a branch the branch name will be displayed, but thats not what im asking.

For our project we have about 10 repositories that are all versioned using Git tags. We switch to supported versions as the product matures. We do not check the tags out to a branch, we leave the head detached as we will not be making changes when on a tag.

It would make a world of difference if I could just scan through the list of repositories that I have and see which versions are checked out currently. Currently, I have to open each repository to view the name of the tag which is currently checked out.

This process is so time consuming and often SourceTree will crash if I open and close the repositories too quickly.

The image below shows the repository group with each repository on a tag except the first on is on master branch. Note each repo on a tag just says "HEAD".
