If you're new to SharePoint, maybe this will help smooth that along:
1- Go to the List or Library that you want to create a view in.
2- In the ribbon at the top pick "Library" or "List"
3- Click the "Create View" button
4- Now you can pick what type of view you'd like. You can copy an existing view that you just want to tweak without changing the original view, or you can create one of these formats:
Let's say for example, that you just want a standard view, so you click on Standard view. Now you need to think about some things:
Now that you know all the things to think about when creating a view, here's an example:
Task: Let's say that the default view with all items is not good enough for my department, and I need to make a view that everybody will find useful, instead of expecting each person to create a personal view, or filtering on the default view each time. I need a view to show all the items in this task list that were "Assigned To" whoever is using that view. I want it sorted by "Due Date", soonest first, and I want to see 100 items in a page instead of the default 30, and there are a total of roughly 500 items in the list but less than 100 of them belong to any particular person at a time. I also want to group these documents by 'Client Name', and I want to see a total on the page for "Amount Due". Here's what I'd do:
Program Manager on SharePoint, MSFT
I created a document library, easy.
I created a view and set as default, easy.
I created insite the library folders, easy.
I want to see the same view as for the library, means same columns ... not possible!!!
Any idea what I could do????
Tanks a lot

Michael, i've tried to contact you but you haven't responded. Please let me know if you are still having this issue.
I've tried creating an Access View all works okay unitl.... I'm using a task list on a team site on a SharePoint Server 2010 installation. It opens Access 2010, I create a report. Save database to doc lib (Shared Document) - but the new view does not appear on the tasks list. I've tried other list types as well, with the same result. What am I missing? What makes a report an Access view?
How do I create a view that uses 3 levels of grouping?
Not sure how to do this but in a picture library, how do we make a filmstrip as a default view...i couldnt configure this?
Cena, I personally haven't tried this, but this blog post seems relevant to what you're looking for: sharepointfeaturesandfailures.blogspot.com/.../how-to-make-film-strip-default-view-for.html
Todd, take a look at this post: techtrainingnotes.blogspot.com/.../sharepoint-group-by-on-more-than-2.html
I have had the same issue as Jane. Did this issue get address. If so please let me know the outcome as I am having the same issue.
Thanks for any help.
I don’t think saving the database to a doc lib is sufficient, I think you have to publish the Access database to SharePoint. This was a new feature in 2010 and is different from just saving the accdb file. msdn.microsoft.com/.../ff402351.aspx
Also, for folks with access issues, I'd recommend checking out the Access Team Blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/Access
If I have 4 columns: Tasks, Contact Person, Number, and Amount. Is there any way I can set up different view for different group on the same Task ? For example: I want Employees group to see all those information but Visitor group only can see Tasks, Contact Person and Number. I already tried Edit view and deselect box next to column Amount for Visitor group, the column was hidden in general view but once I click on one specific Task, all the information is still available. So I want to know if I can completely hide Amount for Visitor group.
Please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have created a view of documents displaying them in descending and ascending order by file name and made the descending order the default view. When I close and reopen the page again it opens on the All Documents standard view. The only way I can find to get round this is to delete the All Documents view. I would like to keep the All Documents option there.
One way to fix this is to make the new view you created the 'default view'. This will only work if the view you created is a public view not a personal view (something you set when you are first creating the view, and it defaults to public view). Here's how to change the view to be the default view:
Click on the view you've created, go to Library tab in the ribbon at the top of the page, then click Modify view. In the first section of options, there should be a checkbox that says "Make this the default view (Applies to public views only)". Make sure that checkbox is checked, then save by pressing OK. Now whenever you click to go to that document library, your new view should be the one that shows up first. Let me know if that helps.
