Please follow the below steps to add additional columns in the Search Results:

P.S.: Here we have taken the scenario of a Class - Start Date, but same steps can be taken to add other columns from the available list:

  1. Go to class search
  2. Click search (you can do blank or you can choose any criteria to search): The columns in the search results which you see are the standard columns, in the next step we will add the columns;
  3. Just above the search result you see the "Field Chooser" option:new 1
  1. Click "Field Chooser" to open a dialogue box (as below); in this box there will be all the available fields which you can choose and add to your search results;

  1. There are few columns which are fixed you cannot change the order of the same, as in the Class section,  Class ID, Title, Item/Resource Block; after them it is possible to order to the fields: meaning which field you want to come as a first column for the same you can give number in front of the fields in the box; for example, in the Results below we have chosen Start Date as number 4 (1,2,3 are fixed by the system), then start date will show up as the first column in the search results after the fixed one;
  • Given start date as column number 4
  • Start date is showing as the fourth column [first three columns are fixed so even if you give start date as 1 it will show up after the default ones]

Please note that you can add only the fields available from field chooser for each entity.
