columns

The columns command shows a list of all the supported columns available for inclusion in a custom report. Each column may have multiple formats, and there are examples shown of each of those formats.

As an example, a due date can be shown in various ways. It can be formatted according to the dateformat configuration setting. It can also be shown as a Julian date, a POSIX epoch, in ISO-8601 format, as an 'age' value or as a 'countdown' value.

Each column has a default format, so if the custom report specifies:

report.my_list.columns=...,due,... 

Then the default format is used. Other formats can be used like this:

report.my_list.columns=...,due.iso,...

Here is sample output for the columns command:
