List view Additional Columns



Hi, I would like to add more columns to list view, right now its only showing 3 columns other naming col.

Waiting for response.




What specifically have you found and tried, with what actual versus expected results?

A screenshot, pointers to docs and threads and so on will add context to inform and benefit all!


Hi @clarkej, thanks for your response.

I would like to show more columns with the reference to image attached, here Status. Job Number and Machine No are visible. No I would like to show more columns from DocType. Its not allowing me to get more than 3 fields visible in list view.

Hope you got my point.



Perhaps this limit is for good reason and unless I’m mistaken noted somewhere?

edit: Check this for example Add column to list view


Its linked to the post of 2015, I am pretty much sure that this would have been catered in by now.


Yup whatever trial and error update you can find or add would be good


The 3 column limit seems to be a ‘UI real estate’ design constraint Show more number of fields in any doctype list page

A review of the basis for that design would help identify what means exist to overcome that, with say a horizontal scroll bar? I am hardly qualified here


Bump. :slight_smile:
