OVS with Extension Fields

Hi colleagues,

Do you guys know how can I make Object Value Selector (OVS) with Extension Fields in standard screens show the Description after an item is selected? Because after you select an item it shows the ID in the field instead of the description differently than what all of the standard OVS does in the system.

I know how to do it with an Embedded Component I created, but can't do the same thing when I'm extending a standard Quick Create because I can't change the Properties and can only use the Extensibility Explorer. There, I couldn't find any option to do this.

I attached a screenshot of the screen I'm extending. The Account and Primary Contact fields are standard. The Target Account is my extension field and as you can see it only shows the ID instead of the description like the other two fields.

Thanks in advance,

Nícolas

    Hi Nicolas,

          I do not know if we have other ways, which I am afraid there is no. For my experience, I have this requirement from customer also.   What I did is to have another extension field , may called "Target Account Description" and when You select the target account ID, you can use Aftermodify script to get the description for the account ID that you choose.

         In this way, customer will see ID/Description for your target account. Just not the same as standard OVS did.

    Thanks.

    I also considered creating an Embedded Component and then adding it to the Quick Create, but unfortunately embedded components in Quick Creates can't be viewed in the iPad. So, I need to use extension fields.
