Create Custom Columns in AD

Is there a way to create a custom column in "Active Directory Users & Computers" advanced view that could display attributes such as  msExchLitigationHoldDate and/or msExchLitigationHoldOwner? That could be Sortable just like all the other attributes displayed?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It has built-in from Extensionattribute1 to extensionattribute15 or something like it.
You just need to map up the extensionattribute# with the one you want to have and document it.

I assume, you mean the fields you can add to an AD view, right.
I guess the solution is to go to the AD object....
Configuration - DisplaySpecifiers - Your Language code - organizationalUnit-Display

The you can look into the property "extra Columns"
Here you find all the columns, which can be added.
you may add there i.e.

msExchLitigationHoldDate,Exchange Hold ID,0,150,0
msExchLitigationHoldOwner,Exchange Hold Owner,0,150,0

You need ADSIEdit or ADExplorer (Sysinternals)

you need to extend the active directory schema to include exchange attribute. Perform same in testing and before proceeding with PROD pls take backup and proceed.
