We are very excited to announce the first addition to the new request list experience after its initial release. With this release, users of the new request list can for the first time natively see custom fields in their request list as well as show and hide them as they want.
Additionally, we have added the ability to see the system fields Priority and Type and allow end users to show/hide these fields.
Custom fields and the two newly added systems fields are only shown in the new request list if they are set as "Customers can view" or "Customers can edit" in the Admin center.

Why did we build it?
Being able to see custom field values has been a long-standing request to enable end users to gain a better overview of their tickets, especially power users managing hundreds of requests on behalf of their organization.
How do I start using it?
If you want to enable end users to see fields that are currently not visible or editable by end users, you can change the field's setting in the Admin center.
If you are not using the new request list (in Open Beta) yet, you can see how to get started here.
Now that you can see custom fields in the new request list experience the immediate next releases as currently planned are:
- Enable combinable filtering by Custom fields, priority, and type values
- Enable sorting on custom field, priority, and type columns
What does Open Beta mean?
This feature is in Open Beta so anyone can opt-in to using the feature as described above, but the feature is considered in a Beta phase as it still has key limitations.
- Filtering on custom field values - coming
- Sorting based on custom field columns - coming
- See [OPEN BETA] Announcing a new request list experience Open Beta with improved filtering, sorting, and column management for other limitations
