    • Hello Sudipti,

      Yes, we can change the number of records to display in the Enhanced List. We can view 10, 25, 50, 100, 200 records in the enhanced related list. You need to put the value in the “Number of Records to Display” setting.


  1. Hi Arun.

    Thank you for this blog, very helpful. I wonder I tap into our expertise.

    I have been tasked to update all the Related List to ‘Enhanced Related List’. In my company we have many Objects and many Lightning Pages. Do you know of any approaches on how I can mass update to Enhanced Related List them as rather than updating one page at a time?

    I am investigating how to do this via VS Code by retrieving and possibly updating the relevant meta data. So far I can see metadata component for Page Layout, but not Lightning Record Pages.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Kind regards

    • You can add or remove the column from the parent object layout.

      For example, go to Account layout and click on the wrench icon for the Contacts-related list and add/remove the column as per your choice.


  2. Is it possible to remove the original related list and display the enhanced version only? In your example this would be the small “Contacts(3)” related list that appears in the right hand sidebar.
