Automatically add alias in front of field names when selecting

Hi eveyrone, I am using a MariaDB source and I have a query like this:

Select name
from organization o
join user u on u.organization_id =

The two tables have some fields that have the same name and some that are unique to each table.
If I SELECT “id”, the auto-complete suggests:
id (o)
id (u)
and if i pick the first one, it automatically inserts

But if I select a field that is unique to one table, like “name”, the autosuggest shows 
name (o)
and when I pick it, it just inserts “name”, without the table alias in front. I would like to have “” though.

I understand the logic, but sometimes I am building queries where I later join another table that *does* have a field called name. So ideally I always want to put the alias in front when selecting a field.
Is this something that can be configured/set up?

Thanks for your help!

Aleksandr Molchanov thanks a lot, that is exactly what I was looking for!

Absolutely brilliant, all the customization options in DataGrip. I am pretty amazed by the UX.

Good to hear you have it configured the way you want it to. And we do appreciate your feedback!
