Provide a way for users to know where a smart field is being used

There have been several times where smart fields have to be re-built because they either don't run or they pull in incorrect data. When this occurs, you cannot delete the defunct smart field... nor can you change the name to alert users. It would be helpful if an administrator could see WHERE a smart field was in use, rather than a simple error message that a smart field cannot be deleted because it is in use.

    If you try to delete a smart field, it will give an error like "Can't delete because it is used in <query name>" So then one by one, you can modify those queries and remove the smart field.  Once no more queries use the field, it will delete.
