    You can also add a custom title for your portlet and specify other display options. For more details, see Displaying Saved Search Results in Dashboard Portlets.

When placed in the right or left columns of a dashboard, custom search portlets display only the first 4 results columns of the saved search. When placed in the center column, they display the first 9 columns. Custom search portlets also include New, Edit, and View columns with links for each result record. Additionally, you can expand the portlet to full-screen view by clicking the double arrow icon The Double Arrow icon. The full-screen view of the portlet displays more columns and rows in the search results.
