Why I can't add fields in the Topic For Object view?

Knowledge Article Number 000205667
Description

I would like to know how to add fields in the Topic for Object View just like the way I add fields in List Views.

Resolution The behavior of this feature is working as designed. Once we have enabled Topic for Object (Setup | Customize | Topics | Topics for Objects), the fields that will show in the Topic for Object View is predetermined based on the fields that are initially available in the default list view of that particular object.

Example:

All Account list view initially has the following fields:
Account Name
Account Site
Billing State/Province
Phone
Type

Therefore, once you have enabled Topics for Account, the above fields will be the only ones that are available once you open any account topic. Even you customize the All Account List view by adding/removing fields, the Topic For Object view will retain the original set of fields.
