Building A SharePoint View

SharePoint views allow us to see SharePoint Lists in different ways. Consider the SharePoint Announcements List as an example, we could have one view that shows only records added by a specific user or records with a particular status. Or we can have a list that shows items in an alphabetical order. Each of these is a  separate SharePoint view. Each list has a “Default” view that is shown when the list is selected from the homepage.

If you open a SharePoint list and go to “Modify settings and columns” link on the left Navigation column, you will see a section at the bottom titled “Views“. This list has only one view viz “All Items“. Click on the link and we’ll see how this view is defined. A list may have a number of views, Announcement is one of the simplest list and has only one view.

Please scroll down to view the details:

 ·          Columns: columns of the view are shown. You should see a list of columns like “Attachments”, “Title”, “Modified ” etc.

·          Sort order: shows the column used for the  sorting order of the items. You should see that the list will be sorted by “Modified” column and in the descending order so that the most recent entry is displayed at the top of the list.

·          Filter: allows you to hide or show items based on a given criteria. No filters are defined by default.

·         Grouping: you can group items together using certain characteristics.
