Hello everyone, I was wondering if it's possible to add custom components to the collection list view. Specifically, I'd like to add a button that can fetch all documents within a collection and download them as a CSV file. I would greatly appreciate any insights or suggestions on how to achieve this. Thank you very much in advance!

    Hi @Dan Sivewright - adding this to your collection config will allow you to overwrite the list view:

    components: {
      views: {
        List: CustomList,

    And to not lose the original view, you can import the list from payload and add your custom component to it, for example:

    import { List } from 'payload/components/views/List';
    const CustomList: React.FC = (props) => (
        <p>Hello add a custom component here</p>
        <List {...props} />
    export default CustomList;

    Hope this helps!
