Thanks for your answer! I assume it’s not possible to do so within actual Customer list for example, accounting for the currently selected filters?

You can do that from the Reports section #Report/Customer

What if the document is custom made, Couldn’t I find my Custome DocType on the list of documents?

Have you enabled Import in your custom doctype?
