The current CRM UI allows you to create relatively complex query which you can extend further with tools like FetchXML Builder.
However, when we get to select the columns in the View, the interface gives access only to the first direct related set of entities and does not navigate further.
There are many cases where the column you want to include in the View is just two-clicks away you cannot include it because is "too far". To make things worse, the FetchXML Builder allows you to write the join but it does not allow you change the the columns layout you had when you opened the View initially. IOW, you can modify the query logic but you cannot include additional columns as required.
One possible solution would be to edit the solution directly and inject the FetchXML directly but I would like to listen to the community opinion first or to possible other solution.
Regards and thank you for taking your time.
Thank you for this post.
You can try to see if you can inject your FetchXml by code, what I'm thinking of is the following:
Other than that, if you can make that fetch as an Advanced Find view, maybe it will help as you can bring linked entities, for example a Case entity view will be able to see columns from the associated Contact, by selecting the entity from the dropdown.
