Standard View in SharePoint 2013


The Standard view in SharePoint includes a standard set of different components that can be used to customize the data display mode. It is also the default view on which various list & library templates are based.


Following list describes the Standard view elements –

Name :-

This is visible to users in list view drop-down


Audience :-

This is where you have the choice of creating a personal view only accessible to you or else where you have the option to create public view accessible to all users having access to the list/library.


Columns :-

Here, you configure columns that you want to be included in your view besides deciding the order of the column display


Sort Order :-

This can either be in ascending format (A to Z) or simply descending (Z to A).


Filter :-

A maximum of 10 filter rules can be added for a single view


Tabular view :-

You can fully specify if checkboxes need to be enabled on the view.


Group By :-

SharePoint allows grouping of two columns with similar items together. While first column acts as parent item, the second acts as its child.


Totals :-

In case of numerical columns, displaying total values for all items can prove beneficial.


Style :-

Based on your presentation requirements, it’s possible for you to select a specific style for your view.


Folders :-

These organize items or documents in a list or library.

We hope all Standard view elements have been explained well in this tutorial.
