Add custom field as a column in filter results screen

I have a custom field that I am trying to show on my filter results page because I would like to export it to Excel. The problem is that I am trying to show the column "Zone", but there are quite a few other custom fields with the word zone in them (1st Zone, 1st Zone schedule, ect) to the point that when I type "Zone" into the search field under the columns drop down it shows all of the wrong fields and at the bottom says "10 more options. Continue typing to refine further." but I have nothing else to type.

Is there a way to show all the options in that column drop down? I really don't want to rename all the other fields if I don't have to.

Sounds like you're suffering from "fielditis" - a common affliction for JIRAs where unnecessary fields have been allowed to proliferate to the point where they start to clog things up.  Ideally, you want to review your field usage back down to sensible levels.

But, in the short term, there's a little trick for this one - start adding the zone fields it is offering.  It removes ones that have been added from the available list, allowing others to creep into it.  Once you've found plain "zone" and added it, go back to the filter fields and remove the ones you don't want.

Rename the field you are searching for.
