How to add more than 1 "Free Text" column in Named BOM

I want to add more than 1 "Free Text" column to my named BOM's but it looks like this is a limitation. 

If I try and add an extra column I get the error "BOM already has a column with the same type:"


Is there a way around this??


We want to use these columns to track the state of our parts, eg purchased, shipped etc..This was other non-SW users can just jump into the BOM and indicate where a part is up to and if new parts are added to an assembly, the state of existing parts is maintained and others can see that new parts are added and need to be fabricated or purchased.
