    Just adding some information, starting from BC23 this has become a little more convenient.

    Drill down is generated from a table property call field group.
    There are two Field Groups - DropDown and Brick.
    Brick view is used when you choose Tile view in windows client or use Phone client.
    Using an extension object- You will be able to add new fields in the DropDown or Brick Field Group with following rules -
    1. You can only add new fields in the end.
    2. You will not be able to remove fields which are already available. 
    How to add field in fieldgroup - Read here (Add a new FieldGroup to an existing table | Microsoft Learn)

    It's not possible out of the box, but you can customize the system to do it. Yun Zhu, a forum member wrote a blog post about it - Dynamics 365 Business Central: How to Customize Drop-Down List (Field Groups) | Dynamics 365 Lab (
