Today we are showing you about View Type and how to create View on SharePoint 2016.
What is SharePoint view?
SharePoint view is way to show the data in List or Library data so that we can find the exact data from the list in predefined view. With views in SharePoint, we can use identify and styles to show, in different ways, the information available in your lists and libraries.
We have by default 4 Views on View type on SharePoint 2016 or any of list or library.
Following are the below:
  • Standard View: View data on a Web page. You can choose from a list of display styles.
  • Calendar View: View data as a daily, weekly, or monthly calendar.
  • Datasheet View: View data in an editable spreadsheet format that is convenient for bulk editing and quick customisation.
  • Gantt View: View list items in a Gantt chart to see a graphical representation of how a team's tasks relate over time.
