Can a user customize their related list view?

Is it possible for users to customize their related list views? Currently they are asking us to change the default layout but that prevents users from being able to see what is important to them.

For example, Accounts - Related - (scroll down to) Orders - (click on) View All
The gear icon for the List View Controls dropdown does not display any options. Users should be able to format what columns are displayed in this view.

Hi Megan,

The columns/fields in the related list view are ONLY rendered from the fields that have been set on the related list of the page layout for that object.

The only other way to have something like this is to create a custom code solution.

The only thing Users are allowed to do is reset the Column Width (if they change it) they can't fully customize the Related List View, like change the Fields/Columns displayed.  That has never been an option (that I know of)

Thank you, this is what was was afraid of! It is misleading that the gear icon is there which suggests you should be able to edit it.
