Variance Infaltion Factor (VIF)

Dear Dr. Ringle,

in my opinion, i would be very useful if SmartPLS would show the max. VIF for all formative constructs (e.g. in Overwiev).
What do you think about that?

Equally or more so than at the indicator level, this would be useful at the LV level. In other words, computing the VIF for the inner model regressions.

It seems that half of PLS papers already provide VIF, some of them at both levels. It would be really useful to have it smartPLS.
