Create a View

A View saves your filter and sort preferences for a specific table. For example, if you create a table with students’ college application data, and filter the table by who has completed their FAFSA, you could save the View as “FAFSA Yes.” The next time you want to access this information, you can choose the “FAFSA Yes” View instead of manually filtering the data. A View can be printed, exported to Excel, added to a Report Writer report for a report card, transcript, or other report, or saved as a group.
