How to display more than three columns in Dynamics 365 lookup view.

We know that we can display multiple column in the dynamics 365 lookup view but there is a limitation that you can only display maximum three column in the lookup view, though we can add multiple columns in the lookup view but you can see only first three columns in the lookup view. This is a limitation in Dynamics 365, Microsoft mentioned here.

Plugin on Retrieve Multiple in CRM.

Filtering records using javascript in subgrid or a view is unsupported and doesnt work hence here is how you can/should filter subgrid records using a plugin.

Nishant Rana's Weblog

Recently we had a requirement to filter sub grid on one of the forms. We thought of using Plugin on Retrieve Multiple for this.

Here we were showing Opportunity Sub Grid on Account form.

So we created a view for Opportunity that will be used as Sub Grid. Used it as Related Record Sub Grid so that we can have the GUID of the Account record being passed to the plugin.

The problem we faced à Sorting and Paging stopped working for the Sub Grid.
