XF 1.4 User custom fields to moderation queue view


how is it possible to show a custom field for a user in the moderation queue view? We have a special "application" field for users when they register and moderators have to approve or disapprove them before they're allowed to post in the forums.

I can't, however, get the custom field to show in the view. I did the print_r (helper dump) to $user, but the custom fields weren't there and I can't get them to show any other way either. Help would be approved!
