I currently use XTENTO Enhanced Order Grid to add fields to the customer grid which works perfectly.

I need to however put in a column for the customers last order date.

I have searched however the only code I found also added in total number of orders and didn't specify the files I needed to edit.

Does anyone have any advice on how I can create / populate this field when an order is placed so I can show it in my grid?

  • Thanks, the top one I have read and the issue is it adds two columns and I don't need the total number of orders column. Do I add the code in that example to "app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Customer/Grid.php" ? Jun 2, 2015 at 13:49
  • If you don't want to have both the columns, then delete the part $this->addColumn('orders_count', array( 'header' => Mage::helper('customer')->__('Orders Count'), 'index' => 'orders_count', )); from the function _prepareColumns(), that will do the job Jun 3, 2015 at 6:30
  • Yes, you can add the codes in app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Customer/Grid.php, but it's a better practise to overwrite the block from local scope Jun 3, 2015 at 6:37
