How to show more selected fields on dashboard event panel

Lgo

I have extracted this field, but cant get it to show on the dashboard, it shows correctly when viewing it in search.

Query is sourcetype=[sourcetype] Description=* ActivityID=[activityid]

It currently shows like this on the dashboard

alt text

But I want it to show like this:

add this to your dashboard:
