Hiding a view

About this task

Designer includes several ways to hide a view from users.

Hiding a view from Notes users

About this task

  • Deselect "Show in View menu" on the Options tab of the View Properties box.

    Omitting a view from the View menu applies only to Notes® users, since Web users don't have access to Notes menus.

  • Select the view name in the Applications Navigator and choose Design - Design Properties. Select "Hide design element from Notes R4.6 or later clients."

    Hiding a view from Notes clients is useful when you have a Web-only view or when you want to remove the view from both the View menu and the folders pane.

  • Give the view a name and surround it with parentheses -- for example, (All).
