Can I add additional standard fields to the custom-filters section?

The only valid custom filters are custom fields: custom01 - custom15. Standard-elements like 'country' cannot be added to custom filter.

Note 1: Only Department, Division and Location fields set as default filters.

Note 2: Currently there is no limit control on how many fields can be used.
