This article describes how to display other than the standard columns in the Orders tab in CMS Desk -> Tools -> E-Commerce -> Orders
You can use the "OrderCustomData" field for some custom order data. Every order is created in the file ~\CMSModules\Ecommerce\Controls\ShoppingCart\ShoppingCartPreview.ascx.cs in the method ProcessStep(). Here you can populate the mentioned column.
For displaying the values in the location "CMS Desk -> Tools -> E-Commerce -> Orders" you have to alter the file ~\CMSModules\Ecommerce\Tools\Orders\OrderList.ascx.cs around line 186:
gridElem.DataSource = OrderInfoProvider.GetOrderList(where, "OrderDate DESC", "OrderID,OrderDate,CustomerFirstName,CustomerLastName,CustomerCompany,

"OrderCustomData" is the name of the column from the table CMS_Order located in the Kentico database. You need also to alter the file ~\CMSModules\Ecommerce\Tools\Orders\Order_List.xml and add a column to display the CustomData:



You may also create a custom name for this data for the unigrid table in the file ~\CMSResources\CMS_Install.resx. E.g.:
 <data name="unigrid.order.columns.customdata" xml:space="preserve">
    <value>Order Custom data</value>
