Show property information (folder type) for a folder in a custom view

It would be nice if property values of a folder can also be made visible in a custom view.

(add these properties to the columns of a custom view so they are shown at the same line as the folder)

    Rudi Pieters Jan 23, 2019 Don't understand: which views? Folders are visible only in the Explorer view or a search result. In those, folder properties can be shown in columns.

    Hi Robin,

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    When creating custom Views, the only objects available are Documents. This then only allows for Document properties to be selected to be displayed on columns.

    In addition, there is a high likelihood of confusing the user if both Document properties and Folder properties were to be shown on the same grid.

    As Rudi mentioned earlier, Folder properties are configurable using the Folder Search Result Columns.

    This works for me if the folder is a typed folder. Is that an option?
