Custom Metadata fields on "Adding Books?"

Hi,

Is the any way to add a custom metadata column to the "Adding Book" screen? I have a book number that I'd like to add to a custom metadata column during import.

You can specify a tag to be added to all books when adding via Preferences->Adding books->Adding actions

@flink - you might be able to make use of the Get File Name plugin, I use it to populate a 'book source' custom column based on file path of book added.
