Hide imported groups

Hi, as we are having so many groups in turbonomic it would be very helpful to hide all imported groups from our targets like vcenter or vmm. We dont need these groups and it only disturbes us while we are searching for something. It would be very good if we could hide all imported groups from the ui and only see our created groups.

    Most of the widgets in the Turbonomic console can be edited and the scope set to specific Entities, My Groups or Auto Generated Groups. For example, go into a Dashboard and click + Add Widget (top of screen). Select one of the widgets to add to the dashboard. This will display a panel with a preview of the widget and a side panel for configuring the widget. In the configuration side panel, there is a link for changing the scope of the widget. Click the change scope link to show the scopes and then choose My Groups. Next, select the group to scope to. For widgets that are on dashboards already, click the stacked dots (More Options) in the upper right corner of the widget and select Edit. This will display the same panel where the widget configuration side panel is displayed and scope can be selected.
