Creating or deleting views

You can create views in Notes® applications, as long as you have proper access. You can also delete any view that you create.

To create a view


  1. Select or open the application where you want to create a view.
  2. From the menu, choose Create > View.
  3. Enter a name for the view.
  4. Choose a view type.
  5. In the Select a location for the new view field, do one of the following:
    • If you want the view to appear at the top level, do not select anything in this field.
    • If you want your view to appear in a specific location, select the location in this field.
  6. Click the Copy from button and do one of the following:
    • Click Blank if you do not want to copy the style of another view.
    • Click the view whose style you want to copy. If the style uses selection by formula, the view's selection criteria appears in the Selection conditions field.
  7. Optional: If none of the existing views or folders of an application shows information the way you want to see it, you can create a customized folder by clicking Save and Customize.
  8. To add your own selection condition using a formula, select By formula, and then add the formula in the space provided.
  9. Optional: To add a search condition, click the Add condition button.
  10. Click OK to create the new view.
