The new feature to store preferences for reports implemented in #1915 is a wonderful feature! This ticket is about making this feature available to all of the user interface.
In particular there is only one place left where this feature does apply yet: the "Left Columns Report List" that is used in the bottom of the Ecommerce overview, and Goal Overview reports.
FYI: See https://github.com/piwik/piwik/issues/1915#issuecomment-48302008 similar for #3807.
It probably can be done but loads of work (multiple days probably as it is not a JS DataTable)
