Remove or add columns to list views

Project description

License: AGPL-3

Custom columns in listview

This module was written to allow users to rearrange columns in list views. This can be done organization wide or just for the user herself.


To configure this module, you need to add users supposed to be able to customize columns to the group Customize list views. Note that this permission allows all sorts of mischief up to privilege escalation under certain circumstances, so this is only for trusted users.


To use this module, you need to:

  1. go to some list and click the columns symbol left of the view switcher

  2. use the buttons appearing in column headers to remove and rearrange columns

  3. use the dropdown appearing next to the columns symbol to add columns

  4. use the person or group symbols next to the dropdown to switch between for whom you customize

  5. use the cross next to those to delete your customization. If there’s a customization both for yourself and everyone, the first reset will put you on the customization for everyone, and the second will delete the customization for everyone

Known issues

  • this addon creates standard view overrides. Those are created with priority 10000 to avoid side effects, but the views will break if you remove fields from the database. Uninstalling the module will remove all view customizations.

  • when rearranging columns, invisible columns count. So if it seems like nothing happens, you’ll probably have some invisible columns


  • support some kind of group level customization

  • allow sharing customizations with others
