Suppose you have a
Book model which has an
author field as given below.
# app_name/models.py class Book(models.Model): ... author = models.ForeignKey(User, on_delete=models.CASCADE)
And you want to show the author's email in the list view of
Book model admin, here is how you do it.
# app_name/admin.py from django.contrib import admin from app_name.models import Book class BookAdmin(admin.ModelAdmin): ... list_display = ("author_email", ) # author_email value is coming from below def author_email(self, obj): # You can create a custom method and show it in the 'list_display' return obj.author.email
