 Hi Some one who may concern,

Hi Someone who may concern,
      May I ask a question about potential duplicate query?
      In work item page, on the right corner, there is a small icon with magnifier, when you click it, it will pop up a window to show all potential duplicates of current work item, and there is a button "Show in queries view" in the window, when you click it, it will pop up a new window to show all potential duplicates as lists in query view. However, it only show default column displays, we find we can not configure to add more column display. But we need to show some customized attributes to filter out irrelevant items. We are wondering it is possible to configure column display for this special query?

Best Regards,
Jane Zhou

I believe that query is created internally when you press the button. You would have to extract the mechanism and create your own custom action, if you would want to see that different. I believe it would be possible, but I have not done that myself. There might be examples in the projects.
