View More Columns Via the “Expand” Shortcut

If you’ve ever put a saved search portlet on your dashboard, you may have wondered why all the columns in the source saved search don’t show up. Well, the NetSuite dashboard has a limit of seven columns to show on a saved search dashboard portlet. But obviously, sometimes you will want to see the content in any columns after number seven! So how can you view more than seven columns on your dashboard?

In the following image, notice the “Expand” shortcut at the top right of the saved search portlet. If you expand the saved search portlet, you will be able to see the entire search in full screen mode, including all your original search columns. Having the ability to expand your list of results on a saved search ensures that none of the important and relevant data turned up by a saved search will be lost at the bottom of the stack of results.
